Saquon Barkley’s ankle injury will keep him on the sideline against the Seattle Seahawks, as he is inactive for the “Monday Night Football” showdown.
Giants coach Brian Daboll labeled Barkley as day-to-day last week after the Pro Bowl running back missed New York’s Week 3 loss to the 49ers. Barkley, who sustained the injury during New York’s come-from-behind win over Arizona in Week 2, was hoping to be ready for the team’s upcoming matchup against Seattle.
When healthy, there aren’t many players better than Barkley. A two-time Pro Bowler, he was a key cog in the Giants’ surprise playoff run last season. Barkley gained 1,650 all-purpose yards in 16 regular season games before tallying 106 total yards and a pair of scores in New York’s upset over Minnesota in the wild card round. He was playing at his usual Pro Bowl level through two games this season prior to sustaining the ankle injury.
