The New York Giants running back — who is represented by Jay-Z's entertainment and sports company, Roc Nation, for contracts and other football matters — was initially unaware of Hov's plans to have “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team “in the near future,” according to TMZ. But the former Penn State star and current Giants workhorse expressed nothing but excitement at the prospect of Jay-Z having a major stake in an NFL franchise. I mean, it's Jay-Z,” Barkley told Yahoo Sports on Friday night, following the Giants' 32-13 preseason win over the Chicago Bears at MetLife Stadium.

But despite the exploits of the most prolific receiving backs last year, running back targets as a share of all passes are not significantly increasing. Teams are just throwing to everyone more often. Last year, 20.2 percent of passes were targeted at running backs, which is in line with the 2001-to-2017 average of 19.5 percent.

The decision by an independent arbiter was announced Tuesday and means the 10-year-veteran will miss the first four games of the regular season, starting with Dallas on Sept. Tate, who signed a $37.5 million contract as a free agent with the Giants in March, announced the suspension in a Twitter post on July 27. He said he intended to appeal it and felt his case had merit because he was using a fertility drug prescribed by a doctor.

Coach Jon Gruden was unsure when Brown would return to practice but expressed confidence the receiver would play in the season opener against the Denver Broncos on Sept. Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck isn't likely to play in the preseason because of a calf injury that has turned into an ankle problem, general manager Chris Ballard said on a conference call. Luck, who originally injured his calf in April, has only participated (in limited fashion) in three practices in training camp.

Saquon Barkley has no problem watching preseason games from the sidelines, if that's what New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur wants. While in uniform, the NFL offensive rookie of the year last season was a spectator and cheerleader for the Giants' 31-22 victory over the Jets on Thursday. Speaking to the media Monday after practice, Barkley shrugged off his role as a non-participant.

There have been some interesting ones.

The Bears overhauled their running back depth this year, yet will spend less than $4 million on that position in 2019. And they're not an outlier in this specific kind of thriftiness. Eight other teams are in the same range; depending on the resolution of Melvin Gordon and Ezekiel Elliott's respective holdouts, over one-third of the NFL could spend around or under $4 million on their running backs, per Spotrac.
