Few NFL teams, if any, have been decimated by injuries as much as the New York Giants have so far this season. That is very much on display on Sunday afternoon.
So far on Sunday afternoon, the Giants – taking on the rival Cowboys – have been absolutely crushed by the injury bug.
New York lost star running back Saquon Barkley to a serious-looking ankle injury minutes into the contest.
Barkley’s ankle swole up in a big way. He had to be carted off the field.

Later in the first half, the Giants lost starting quarterback Daniel Jones to an apparent head injury. Jones attempted to run the ball into the end zone for a score, but got stopped short – and slammed into the turf.
Jones stumbled as he made his way off the field.

That obviously is not what you want to see.
Everyone in the NFL world is feeling for the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Saquon Barkley is already ruled out with an ankle injury.

I think the Giants are cursed by some kind of injury demon.

Can only hope that’s a minor low-ankle injury for Saquon Barkley if you’re the #Giants. What an incredibly frustrating way to suffer an injury.

If you’re watching the Giants game, you probably saw RB Saquon Barkley’s left foot get tangled up. Classic ankle inversion sprain mechanism (sole of foot faces inward); camera just showed him on sideline with golf ball-size swelling in lateral ankle (common w/this type of injury)

Hopefully neither injury is as serious as it looked.
The Giants have been hanging tough, though. Dallas is leading New York, 17-10, with less than a minute to play in the first half on Sunday afternoon.
