The Giants’ comeback win vs. the Arizona Cardinals was soured as Saquon Barkley suffered an ankle injury which puts him in severe doubt for Thursday night’s game at San Francisco.
Barkley was an integral part in Big Blue’s second half resurgence, where it scored 24 unanswered points to win 31-28 in the desert.
Though, the star running back hobbled off the field, with the help of trainers, late in the fourth quarter with an apparent right ankle injury.
Since, scans have come back negative with an MRI occurring tomorrow, per Jordan Schultz.
According to the report, New York believes Barkley as a sprained ankle, something not considered to be a ‘serious injury.’

Barkley had 92 scrimmage yards which included both a rushing and receiving touchdown
Barkley had 92 scrimmage yards in Glendale — inclusive of 17 carries for 63 rush yards and six receptions for 29 receiving yards.
The former No. 2 overall pick also amassed a rushing and receiving touchdown. The latter was typically spectacular.
Quarterback Daniel Jones found Barkley on an option route with 8:54 remaining as the G-Men trailed 28-14.
After Barkley hauled in the football, he made a run and dive at the pylon, acrobatically knocking it over for six.
He made several key plays as the Giants scored another touchdown on its succeeding drive before Graham Gano put through the go-ahead field goal on the drive following.
