The Facts: Following up on an ongoing story. ... Barkley told reporters Thursday that if today was a playoff game, he would find a way to play. But the running back also did something resembling running, after missing his third straight day of practice with a hamstring issue.
Diehards Line: According to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com, Barkley described the issue as a “tweak,” and he was able to do some jogging on the side. He’s been out of practice since Monday, and it would be foolish to play him in Friday’s second preseason game -- since it's not a playoff game or anything.
