The Giants will sign a veteran running back to help replace Saquon Barkley whose done for the season with a torn ACL, but the role of Dion Lewis should increase.

Dion is not an every down running back, but that doesn’t mean he can’t handle more reps. Head Coach Joe Judge knows him well from their days together in New England, and Judge understands how focused and prepared Dion is both and off the field. Replacing Barkley is impossible, but Dion can help pick up some of the load at running back.
