Giants RB Saquon Barkley will undergo surgery to repair his torn ACL on Friday in Los Angeles, reports SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

According to Vacchiano, the Giants' hope is that Barkley will be ready to return in full in time for training camp next July.

Barkley suffered the injury 40 days ago against the Chicago Bears, and doctors had been waiting for the swelling to go down before operating.

During his rookie season in 2018, Barkley rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns to go along with 91 receptions for 721 yards and four touchdowns. He followed that up with 1,003 yards and six touchdowns on the ground in 2019..
