It's the moment that New York Giants fans have been eagerly awaiting for the better part of a year. After a gruesome, season-ending ACL tear in Week 2 of the 2020 campaign and the ensuing injury rehab, Saquon Barkley looks ready to make his return.

According to reports, the Giants are expecting to activate their star running back off the PUP list on Monday and he should return to training camp practices sometime this week.

Giants fans, it's time for a big sigh of relief. So far New York has seen Barkley attending camp, but unfortunately only working on the side of the practice field with activities such as running, cutting and jumping.

It was quite clear the Giants will take Barkley's return from injury with extreme caution. Still, this is the greatest news that New York fans could hope for.

Barkley will look to return to his dominant form that he showcased across his first two NFL seasons. This dominant form included a Pro Bowl selection and Offensive Rookie of the Year award in 2018. In those two seasons, Barkley rushed for 2,310 yards including 23 total touchdowns and 143 receptions. He's one of the most dynamic running backs in the NFL and it's exciting for New York fans to imagine the pairing of him and quarterback Daniel Jones in 2021.

Currently, the Giants own +230 odds to make the playoffs in 2021, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. A fully healthy Saquon will go a long way in determining where New York finds themselves in the standings come playoffs time.
