Giants HC Pat Shurmur said RB Saquon Barkley was "banged up" during the loss to the Jets. Barkley gave no comment when asked by reporters, but ESPN's Jordan Raanan notes that he appeared to go for an x-ray after the game. We'll see if we learn tomorrow, but Barkley gets a well-timed Week 11 bye.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll get back to his workhorse role in Sunday’s plus matchup against the Cardinals.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) was a full-go in practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Cardinals -- and return to RB1 territory in our rankings.

Giants RBs Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Wayne Gallman (concussion) are out for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. Barkley seemingly has a shot to return for Week 7. It'll be Jon Hilliman and Elijhaa Penny in New York's backfield tomorrow. Hilliman figures to tally 12-15 touches but isn't an attractive fantasy play vs. New England's 2nd-ranked RB defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is "unlikely" to play against the Patriots on Thursday night. He's made a bunch of progress in his rehab, but he's still only 2-and-a-half weeks removed from what's usually a 4+ week injury. We're betting on Barkley returning for Week 7 against the Cardinals. With RB Wayne Gallman (concussion) also expected to miss the Patriots game, the G-Men are down to undrafted rookie RB Jon Hilliman. He has a shot to see ~15 touches on Thursday night but still isn't a recommended fantasy play in this matchup.

Injury Predictor

Barkley arrives in the NFL with a pretty clean injury history. He dealt with a couple of ankle sprains across 3 years at Penn State but hasn't most a game since the 2 he sat out as a 2015 freshman. Barkley amassed 18.1 carries per game over his final 2 college seasons, adding 72 receptions over that span. He could be in for even more work after joining the Giants as the #2 overall pick in April.
