Giants running back Saquon Barkley has a high ankle sprain and is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday after exiting the team's 32-31 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Barkley did not return after being helped off the field in the first half.

The 22-year-old Barkley was attended to on the sideline after his ankle appeared to be bent awkwardly during a tackle. Two trainers helped him walk to the locker room with two minutes left in the second quarter. The second pick of the 2018 NFL draft looked to be in pain as he was helped off, and he couldn't walk on his own. He was originally listed as questionable to return.

Before exiting, Barkley had eight carries for 10 yards. Barkley returned to the sideline after halftime using crutches in a hoodie and walking boot.

The Giants next face the Redskins on Sept. 29.
