Pat Shurmur comments
“We have two guys out, (Corey) Ballentine and (Sterling) Shepard. The rest of the guys are available and Saquon (Barkley) will play.”
Q: Is Sterling continuing to make progress?
“Yeah, he is. He’s had a really good week. He’s in the (concussion) protocol. Unfortunately, it’s just an element of time.”
Q: I can’t help but notice a certain change in your injury disclosure this week. Why so much different than a week ago?
“Well, last week he (Saquon) was coming back from injury. We were being cautious and smart about it all the way up until the game. We were just more deliberate about it. Now that he has played and we’ve seen how a week applies to a game, I’m pretty confident in saying he’s playing. I think it’s fair to say we’re always cautious with guys that are coming back from injury. I didn’t think it was that big a deal. But he is playing.”
