The New York Giants need Saquon Barkley healthy to help young quarterback Daniel Jones as he replaces Eli Manning under center.

Unfortunately, that might not be the case. Barkley left Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a foot injury and was seen on the sideline in a walking boot.

This came after the reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year put up just 37 yards on 12 touches.

The injury appeared to have happened on this play.


That’s not good at all.

Barkley, 22, entered Sunday’s game having put up 2,302 total yards in just 18 career games.

Let’s hope this injury isn’t as serious as it seems.
