Giants star running back Saquon Barkley left Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys in the first quarter, and was later ruled out with an ankle injury.

Barkley collided with Cowboys defender Jourdan Lewis on an overthrow by Daniel Jones, and then hobbled off the field. Replay showed that Lewis stepped on Barkley's foot and caused the running back to grab his ankle in pain.

Barkley was eventually carted to the locker room from the sideline. The initial diagnosis is that he suffered a sprained ankle, SNY NFL Insider Ralph Vacchiano reported. The sprain is considered a low-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Barkley is almost certain to be out next week and possibly longer. The Giants will know more after tests on Monday morning.

Barkley has run for 186 yards on 52 carries with two touchdowns and 14 receptions for 130 yards with a touchdown over four games this season. The former Penn State standout played just two games in the 2020 season due to a torn ACL.

In the second quarter on a third and goal, Jones initiated a helmet-to-helmet hit with LB Jabril Cox and after struggling to stand up, he left the game immediately. Jones scrambled to his left and collided with Cox at the goal line.

Backup QB Mike Glennon came in as the replacement as Jones was carted to the locker room to further evaluate his injury. He was later ruled out with a concussion.

Unexpectedly, WR Kenny Golladay was ruled out with a knee injury following halftime. After the game it was announced that Golladay suffered a hyperextended knee. The injury occurred when he collided with CB Trevon Diggs early in the game, and got worse as the game went along.
