Giants RB Saquon Barkley is out for three weeks with a “normal” ankle sprain

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is expected to miss three weeks with a “common” ankle sprain after he went down late in Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals.

According to Schefter, the sprain is considered “normal” and not a high ankle sprain or anything more serious.

If he is out for three weeks, Barkley will return for the game against the Buffalo Bills on October 15th. The Giants will face the San Francisco 49ers next week.

Barkley twisted his ankle awkwardly on the Giants’ final drive of Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He was helped off the field and was clearly limping with just over a minute left in the fight.

An MRI on Monday then confirmed the sprain.

After suffering a crushing loss to the Dallas Cowboys earlier in the season, the Giants trailed the Cardinals 20-0 at halftime on Sunday – making them the first team since the 1978 Baltimore Colts to begin a season with Was outnumbered by 60:0 points. But to end the game and celebrate their biggest comeback since 1950 with a 31:28 victory.

Barkley had 63 rushing yards on 17 carries and scored twice, once on the ground and once through the air. The 26-year-old had 51 rushing yards on 12 carries in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Barkley had a career-high 1,312 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns with the Giants last season, his fifth in the league after they selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in 2018. He followed a short layoff this summer after the team attempted to use the franchise tag on him.
