Giants LT Andrew Thomas out; Saquon Barkley a game-time call

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Head coach Brian Daboll said the New York Giants could be severely short-handed Monday night, with left tackle Andrew Thomas ruled out and running back Saquon Barkley is expected to make a decision on game day.

The Giants take on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night at MetLife Stadium.

Thomas is dealing with a hamstring injury and didn’t respond well in practice earlier this week. He will miss his third straight game.

Barkley suffered a high ankle sprain. His training has been limited all week.

Matt Breida is expected to be the starter in Barkley’s absence. Josh Ezudu will once again take over for Thomas.

Thomas told ESPN earlier this week that his chances of returning and playing against the Seahawks are “very good.” He then participated in Thursday’s fully padded practice. But things didn’t go as planned. The next day, he was kept inside to work with coaches.

That’s not a particularly encouraging sign for a Giants offensive line that has struggled this season. Thomas is a solid player (when healthy) after earning All-Pro honors last season. However, New York will have left guard Ben Bredesen recovering from a concussion. He missed last Thursday night’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
