*Giants quarterback Eli Manning is back for another season, but he’s not likely to play much in this preseason contest. Perhaps one or two series, but expect Giants backups, Davis Webb and Kyle Lauletta, to get most of the time.
*The Giants feature rookie running back Saquon Barkley who is expected to see action. He’s working on improving every day in practice, he said, according to NJ.com.
“Every rep I get, try to maximize it to the best that I can,” Barkley said. “I’m not looking for this amount of yards, or this amount of touchdowns, I just want to be in the right spot on every play.
“I think as a rookie, probably a lot of rookies make some mistakes in their first game. I want to stay away from making them, and continue to get better throughout the game.”
