Report: Barkley likely out until Week 9 with ankle injury
Barkley, who the Giants ruled out of Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, reportedly has an "outside chance" of playing in a Monday matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8.
The 24-year-old spent the offseason rehabbing from a torn ACL that ended his 2020 campaign.
Barkley has missed time every season since playing all 16 games and winning Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2018. He expressed frustration with his health struggles after injuring his ankle in Week 5.
"It doesn't make sense why it's happening," Barkley said.
Injuries have hit the Giants' offense hard lately. The team ruled out wide receivers Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard, and Kadarius Toney for Week 7 and placed left tackle Andrew Thomas on injured reserve this week.
