EAST RUTHERFORD Youth Jordan Weal Jersey , N.J. (AP) — First-round draft pick Saquon Barkley ran on his own as the New York Giants returned to practice.

The former Penn State running back drafted No. 2 overall carried a ball and ran at roughly three-quarter speed Sunday as strength and conditioning coach Aaron Wellman watched.

Barkley strained a hamstring catching a pass out of the backfield at practice last Monday. He did not participate in the workouts held jointly in Allen Park, Michigan between the Giants and Detroit Lions. He also did not play in Friday’s preseason game.

Coach Pat Shurmur continues to say Barkley will be handled on a day to day basis.

Jonathan Stewart and Wayne Gallman took the majority of first-team snaps during the practice that lasted roughly an hour.

While the injury is not going to change Barkley’s role as the starting halfback, a hamstring problem that has sidelined third-year safety Darian Thompson is creating a three-man competition for the spot opposite Landon Collins.

Curtis Riley, who played the past two seasons in Tennessee, and Andrew Adams, who has had 17 starts in the past two seasons, are competing for the job for Thompson, who also has 17 starts in two seasons.

Riley was considered the outsider coming into training camp, but he started against the Lions and continues to play with the first team.

“I bring a lot of range, I can tackle Josh Morrissey Jersey , speed, communication, which is the biggest thing, and just knowing the defense,” said Riley, who missed the preseason opener against Cleveland Browns with a hamstring injury.

Thompson started against Cleveland and sustained his hamstring injury.

Riley, who appeared in seven games with the Titans, said Tennessee played a similar defense.

“It’s about communication, knowing what you are supposed to do, knowing where to put other people Alex Pietrangelo Jersey Kids ,” Riley said, adding the coaches will decide the starter. “You’ve got to make plays, the NFL is about making plays.”

Shurmur said backup quarterbacks Davis Webb, Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney are making progress on a daily basis. He said he has not made a depth chart for the position beyond Eli Manning being the starter.

NOTES: CB Donte Deayon (hamstring) and WR Travis Rudolph (quad) returned to practice after missing a week with injuries “They’ve got to get back in there,” Shurmur said. “Again, their health is a front burner deal for us. We want to make sure they’re healthy before we put them out in an uncontrolled setting, So yeah, they’ve got to catch up. That’s just the nature of being out.” … Shurmur said he has a game plan of sorts for the contest with the Jets on Friday night at MetLife Stadium. “We want to run plays that work. It’s not like we’re trying to save anything, so certainly we’re going to try and do that a little bit.”

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Because he isn’t likely to play more than a series or two in Friday’s preseason opener Womens Travis Hamonic Jersey , Detroit quarterback Matt Stafford has a few modest goals for the Lions offense.

“Just execute and communicate at a high level,” Stafford said Wednesday. “Get out there and communicate and make sure everybody’s on the same page. At the end of the day, on offense if everybody’s communicating on the same page you’re going to have a chance to be successful. That’s the biggest thing, go out there and make sure that we’re just playing good, sound football.”

The Lions spent the past two days conducting joint workouts with Oakland at the Raiders’ training camp facilities in the heart of Napa Valley wine country.

Following Tuesday’s 2 1/2-hour practice, which was highlighted by a multi-player brawl that ended a team scrimmage session, the Lions packed up to travel to a hotel 75 miles south of Napa where they’ll stay until Friday’s game.

Detroit first-year coach Matt Patricia declined to say how much Stafford and the rest of the Lions starters will play.

“I’m just trying to get through today’s practice and make sure I get everybody going in the right direction,” Patricia said prior to Tuesday’s practice. “We’ll find out on Friday.”

The Lions’ first offense had an uneven day against the Raiders during the team scrimmage. They were flagged for three penalties and sputtered on their initial drive before Stafford found wide receivers Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr. for deep completions.

“I feel physically good,” Stafford said. “Obviously another year in the system is going to hopefully help me expand my ability within the system to get us into the best plays possible. I feel very comfortable at the line of scrimmage doing our thing, but I can always be better. I’m always trying to find ways to improve and to get the ball to those playmakers at a higher clip.”

Stafford passed for 4 ,446 yards with 29 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 2017, his seventh consecutive season with 4,200 yards or more. The 30-year-old quarterback also had a career-best 99.3 passer rating.

Detroit, which hasn’t made it past the wild card round of the playoffs since 1991, won three of its final four games down the stretch but failed to advance to the postseason.

Although he won’t be on the field very long Friday, Stafford is relishing playing in a game after mostly practicing against Detroit’s defense before the two workouts with Oakland.

“It’s a good change-up,” Stafford said. “We have to go out and prepare for another defense a night before. You don’t have a ton of time to look at them. You just go out there and try to execute your stuff as well as you can. I’ve got players on this team that I’ve never played an NFL game with before so it’s going to be to see how they go about their business and how they react.”

Tuesday’s practice got chippy when Lions defensive end Anthony Zettel hit Raiders backup guard Jon Feliciano from the side, sparking a fracas involving multiple players before they were eventually pulled apart.
