Barkley on Track to Return Week 1

Not a surprise, mind you, but one would think if he does return, he'd definitely be on a pitch count, no?


I am not sure if I would start him on Sunday. He's probably going to be cleared towards the end of the week. With a 4 day turn around to the next game maybe it would best to start him against Washington. I'd have to believe the medical staff and coaches need to make sure he's on pitch count. If he get's hurt coming back to soon then what?

If he plays, I can pretty much guarantee he'll be on a pitch count. Personally I'd hold him out this weekend, but then again I said hold Daniel Jones out against the Cardinals last year and we all know how that worked out.

If Judge and Gettleman blow how they manage Seqoun's return. He get's hurt I am not sure if they both make it to the end of the season.
 
I just don't understand why he's not on pitch count given the severity of his injury. This seems really strange.
I would do the same, but then again I wouldn't have played Daniel Jones vs. Arizona last year either.
I am starting to find it hard to believe what Judge says about protecting players first. He got lucky with Jones who took some beating when he got hurt last year. So here we go again. Sequon's our biggest asset and Judge is exposing him to a potential unnecessary injury. If Sequon Barkley get's hurt, Judge probably thinks he can talk his way out of any responsibility. He seems to talk like a coach who knows a lot about coaching every aspect of an NFL team, but I have my doubts. He may be interested in winning as many games as he can with injuries being part of the game. I am starting to think that maybe John Mara hired the wrong coach. Time will tell if he's the right coach. We will start to know real soon.
