New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley was spotted wearing an FDNY shirt during his pre-game warm-up before facing the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Barkley was among the players honoring the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Saturday marked the 20th anniversary of the horrific events that took place in 2001.

Barkley has been officially activated for the game. It will be his first game for the Giants in about a year after suffering an ACL tear in week two of the 2020 season. But his workload should be closely watched as the Giants have a short deadline for week 2 which is played Thursday night.

Giants coach Joe Judge said earlier in the week that Barkley would play on Sunday unless something caused a setback in practice or in the hours leading up to the game.
“I’m going to go, I’m going (going) to sit down and I’m going to say, ‘I’m going to do whatever the team wants me to do’, and whatever they think is the best thing for me and for the team and if they feel like it’s ready for me, then I’m good to go, ”Barkley told reporters on Friday.
“If they think they think I should wait a bit, then I’ll wait a bit.”
Barkley is hoping to have as big of an impact on the offense as he has in years past.
