Barkley (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
There have been media whispers about shutting Barkley down, but both team and player have suggested that's not the plan. He's simply managing his ankle injury, and while Devontae Booker may continue to steal a large chunk of the backfield snaps/touches in an incompetent offense, Barkley also figures to stay involved, barring any setbacks. Week 17 brings a trip to Chicago, where Barkley suffered his ACL tear last September.
