Giants expect to be without Saquon Barkley for ‘several weeks’

Rex Ryan Daniel Jones is the'best quarterback in New York

Nearly immediately, outside expert Dr. David Chao - who offers real-time injury analysis as the "Pro Football Doc" - said Barkley would likely miss "multiple weeks" with a high ankle sprain.

NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year for 2018 Saquon Barkley has a high sprain to his right ankle and there is no immediate timetable for his return.

The Giants have not yet officially confirmed Schefter's report or Chao's analysis.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley - who's already been called the NFL's best running back - reportedly suffered a high ankle sprain Sunday afternoon that could sideline him anywhere from 4-8 weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Eli Penny was listed as the Giants' third-string running back before Barkley's injury.


Barkley's reported recovering window means he probably will miss four to seven games, with the hope of him returning after the bye, for the final six games.

Wayne Gallman will presumably take over as the Giants' starting back with Barkley out. Also, don't be surprised if the Giants look to add a bit of depth at the position this week.

Barkley left his team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers late in the first half with an ankle injury. All the Giants can do is wait for their star running back to heal up.

Dr. David Chao outlined his opinion on the injury and noted why fantasy owners should breathe a sigh of relief, per The San Diego Union-Tribune. Good news in that initial diagnosis is not a break. But a one month absence seems likely, and they'll have to really pray that it doesn't become two. Barkley also has 11 receptions for 74 yards through three games.
