Saquon Barkley ‘trying my best’ to play

Saquon Barkley is expected to be a game-time decision due to his high ankle sprain. Barkley told media recently that he knows the smart decision would be to sit out, but that he would still rather play.

“I think [sitting out] that is the smart thing to do business-wise,” Barkley said. “I wouldn’t question anybody telling me that I should do that but at the end of the day, it’s my life. I make the decisions, so I love this game and I feel like if it’s good to play, go out there and play. So, I’m trying my best.”
