Saquon Barkley limps off field shortly before Giants complete 21-point comeback victory vs. Cardinals


The New York Giants pulled off an amazing comeback victory against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, erasing a 21-point deficit, but it may have come at a cost.

On the second-to-last play of the game, Saquon Barkley appeared to injury his right ankle on the play, limping toward the sideline before he was helped off the field.

As Barkley got to the bench, he slammed his helmet down in frustration as trainers evaluated his leg.

The 26-year-old running back did not return to the game, but the Giants only ran one more play before Graham Gano kicked a game-winning 34-yard field goal to complete the comeback.

Barkley’s ankle was seen taped up as he headed to the locker room, but head coach Brian Daboll did not have any further update during his press conference after the game.

Barkley underwent an X-ray, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN, though the results were not immediately known. The two-time Pro Bowler was seen limping around the locker room and the ankle appeared to be swollen, Raanan added.

Barkley rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries while also catching six passes for 29 yards and scoring a receiving touchdown.

The Giants are on a short week, facing the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football, making Barkley’s chances of playing next week slim, regardless of the severity of the injury.
