New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley suffered a high ankle sprain Sunday in the team’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Giants announced the diagnosis Monday, and NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Barkley will miss the next 4-6 weeks. The Giants defeated the Buccaneers 32-31 Sunday for their first win of the season. (RELATED: Daniel Jones Dominates Against The Buccaneers In First NFL Start)

You hate to see this for Barkley who in his second year and is already one of the league’s best players. He also appears to be a great teammate based on how eager he was to celebrate the Giants’ win.

Between Barkley and rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, the future looks bright for the Giants. It’s just a shame that Barkley’s injury will temporarily put it on hold.
