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.

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.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley suffered what appeared to be a right knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He immediately grasped at the knee in pain and had to be carried off. This obviously doesn't look good. We'll update Barkley's status when we learn more. Barkley's absence leaves the G-Men with Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman.

Update: Barkley has been ruled out.

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.
