Steve Smith: Giants need to test Saquon Barkley’s knee - NY Post

Some pre-Week 2 analysis from Smith (the one from the Panthers).

“When you are younger, it helps, but age has nothing to do with ACL tears. It’s just how bad is it?” Smith, a five-time Pro Bowler, said when asked about the 24-year-old Barkley this week on a conference call. “We will never find out if Saquon Barkley is getting his explosiveness back if all you are doing is sitting back and throwing the ball.

“They didn’t do a good job of getting him in rhythm — and this is a wide receiver talking about getting the running game going. It really limited to see how much explosiveness he had or didn’t have. When you drop and throw the ball as much as they are trying to do, it makes things very difficult to judge.”
