Barkley, Newton back as Giants, Pats wrap up joint practices

The final day of joint practices between the Giants and Patriots featured the return of two stars hoping to be on the field when their teams begin the regular season. Giants running back Saquon Barkley participated in 7-on-7 drills on Thursday for the first time this preseason, getting reps with the first team early in practice before joining the training staff for individual conditioning. Wearing a non-contact jersey and working against only light resistance from the defense, he caught one pass — a short dump-off in the flat from Daniel Jones, trotting into the end zone.
