Saquon Barkley Will Not Require Surgery After High Ankle Sprain

Saquon Barkley Injury

Giants fans and fantasy owners alike took some harsh news after Saquon Barkley suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 3. However, after the running back’s visit with a specialist in Green Bay, Barkley will not require surgery. In other words, the 2018 offensive rookie of the year is scheduled to make a return in 4-6 weeks.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the news Thursday morning.


So far this season, Barkley has rushed for 237 yards and a touchdown on 37 carries. The running back averaged 6.4 yards a touch, ranking second in the NFL through three weeks. With Barkley sidelined for the next few weeks, the Giants running back committee will consist of Wayne Gallman and Elijhaa Penny.

In addition to the change at running back, quarterback Daniel Jones will be gaining his second NFL start. The Giants take on the division rival Washington Redskins on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how the Giants fare in their first outing without their star running back.
