Barkley is showing remarkable improvement in his recovery from a high ankle sprain, but the team is opting to be cautious with the young running back. It's possible, if not likely, that Barkley returns for the team's Week 7 matchup against the Cardinals at home. With Wayne Gallman also sidelined with a concussion, running backs Jon Hilliman and Elijhaa Penny should both see time in the New York backfield.
