Saquon Barkley is dealing with a significant injury. Barkley suffered a sprained ankle, fortunately it is not broken. He is expected to miss some time. Barkley will undergo an MRI on Monday.
Barkley’s ankle got rolled up on by a Buccaneers defender, and it looked like it could’ve been worse at first. He left the game wearing a walking boot, so presumably it’s a high ankle sprain.
This is a massive loss for the Giants’ offense. New QB Daniel Jones will be heavily relied on with Barkley out. Jones rallied his team to a 32-31 win on Sunday in the first game.
The Giants drafted Barkley second overall last April, and he’s been electrifying the league ever since. The Penn State product averaged five yards per carry last season, he has also caught 91 passes for 721 yards. There’s a lot of optimism around this Giants team due to Jones’ emergence, but the Barkley injury certainly puts a damper on things.
