#Giants OL Nick Gates has a lower leg fracture, the team announced. A brutal early injury at a key spot.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 17, 2021
Let me tell you something… that man Nick gates. If I could go to war with one teammate I’ve had in my life… it’s that dude. That dudes a fighter. Hearts your heart seeing him go down.— Alex Bachman (@AlexBachman) September 17, 2021
This just sucks for Nick Gates. He was elected a captain this season and he moved to left guard tonight to help the team. The reaction from players tells you this is serious.— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) September 17, 2021
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.”
