Saquon Barkley Injures Ankle vs. Cowboys, Carted to Locker Room

Giants running back Saquon Barkley was carted to the locker room on Sunday after suffering an apparent ankle injury in the first quarter. 

Barkley hurt his ankle as he landed on the foot of Cowboys defensive back Jourdan Lewis. He stood up and limped to the sideline, but did not return to the game after being evaluated by team trainers. The FOX broadcast showed Barkley's ankle severely swollen before he was taken to the locker room via cart. 

The Giants ruled Barkley out for the game shortly after he entered the locker room. He is expected to be out next week, but he isn't expected to miss significant time, per the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Barkley missed 14 games in 2021 after tearing his ACL in September. He tallied 126 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in a Week 4 win over the Saints last week.
