Giants RB Saquon Barkley twisted his right ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bucs. He hobbled off the field, putting very little weight on that leg. Stay tuned for an update. RB Wayne Gallman is next up for the Giants.
Update: Barkley has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
Monday morning testing confirmed the Giants' fears. RB Saquon Barkley will have surgery soon to repair his torn right ACL. Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman climb the pecking order with Barkley down. The Giants will reportedly have RB Devonta Freeman in for a visit as well -- and figure to sign someone even if Freeman doesn't fit.
The Giants fear RB Saquon Barkley tore his right ACL against the Bears, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. There will reportedly be further testing Monday to "make a full and complete determination." RB Dion Lewis scored a 1-yard rushing TD after Barkley's departure and should be the next guy up. But RB Wayne Gallman would likely be significantly involved as well.
