Giants' Barkley suffers mild hamstring strain

The New York Giants temporarily wrapped Saquon Barkley's left leg after the rookie started limping at the end of a big play at practice on Monday. Coach Pat Shurmur said he didn't know what happened: "I think he's all right, but we'll find out."

New father Sterling Shepard had a daughter, Cali Clay Shepard, born on Friday. "Considerate baby" he said after she came the morning after the preseason opener and before their trip to Detroit. Shepard wasn't planning to travel with the Giants to Detroit first few days if Cali didn't come nine days early.

Saquon Barkley was checked by trainers after this big play. Looked as if he came up a bit lame at the end. He was walking around afterward but does have his left leg wrapped now.

Giants' Barkley goes for 39-yard run in first play

On his first play in an NFL game, Saquon Barkley jump-cut to his right, burst upfield, and by the time he was pushed out of bounds had at least one teammate convinced. "That was impressive and that's what you want to see," Giants OL Olivier Vernon said.

Giants host 1st NFL game with legal mobile bets

Thursday's Browns-Giants preseason contest was the first NFL game in the U.S. in which fans had the opportunity to place a legal wager from the comfort of their seats inside the stadium -- on their phones.

Coach Pat Shurmur says Odell Beckham Jr. not playing had nothing to do with his contract or anything that happened last preseason. He's coming back from a serious ankle injury and Shurmur "never intended to play him in this game."

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Saquon Barkley needed just one play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Browns to show what he can add to the Giants offense. His 39-yard run on his first carry put his elusiveness (avoided three tackles) and big-play ability on display. That should have coach Pat Shurmur scheming endlessly to make the Giants' offense scary, especially when Barkley eventually gets on the field in Week 1 with Odell Beckham Jr., who did not play in the contest.

The Giants not playing because of injuries: CBs William Gay and Donte Deayon, S Curtis Riley, WR Travis Rudolph, TE Ryan O'Malley, LB Thurston Armbrister. Gay and Riley had been taking first-team snaps. Deayon is in that nickel CB mix.
