Former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley had to be helped off the field after an apparent ankle injury in the Giants game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Late in the second quarter, Barkley’s ankle bent awkwardly while getting tackled.

He then returned to the sidelines on crutches with a boot on his lower leg. He finished the day with 10 rushing yards on eight carries and four catches for 27 yards.
