SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — New York Giants star running back Saquon Barkley says he sustained a high ankle sprain late in the fourth quarter in the comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Amazon, which broadcasts the Thursday night games, reported Barkley described his injury as a high ankle sprain.
High ankle sprains usually have a longer recovery period than injuries to the lower part of the ankle.
The Giants' next game will be on Oct. 2, a Monday night game at MetLife Stadium against the Seattle Seahawks.
Barkley, the NFL Offensive rookie of the year in 2018, had a high ankle sprain in 2019 and missed three games.
