New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley has had surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee. Giants coach Joe Judge confirmed the surgery on Saturday without giving specifics. Judge said Ronnie Barnes, the team's senior vice president of medical services and head trainer, spoke with the surgeon in Los Angeles and said the procedure seemingly went well.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-2) and New York Giants (1-6) are having two very different seasons. They face off on Monday Night Football in Week 8 of the NFL season. Will Tampa Bay roll to a win in New York?
