The New York Giants rallied from 21 points down to beat the Arizona Cardinals 31-28.
But star running back Saquon Barkley suffered a serious ankle injury.
Barkley, who scored two touchdowns (one rushing and one receiving), will undergo an MRI on today in Arizona to determine the severity of the injury and how much time he could miss, sources told ESPN.
Barkley’s ankle was swollen after the game, but the initial thinking, in the words of one source, is that “it’s an ordinary [sprain], rather than a high-ankle sprain.”
It was clear that Barkley was in pain as he took a cart to the X-ray room after limping off the field. X-rays on the ankle were negative, according to sources.
“I don’t know yet,” coach Brian Daboll said when asked about the severity of Barkley’s injury.
