New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley was knocked out of Sunday's game in Tampa Bay with a right ankle injury in the second quarter and will not return, the team announced.
The second-year back was on the sidelines on crutches and in a walking boot as the second half began.
Barkley was injured when Bucs safety Mike Edwards went low on him to make a tackle after Barkley caught a short pass from Daniel Jones and was trying to get out of bounds. The play happened with little more than three minutes left in the first half and the Giants trailing 18-10.
Tampa Bay would score 10 more points to take a 28-10 lead into the locker room.
Barkley entered the game with 227 rushing yards on 29 carries (7.8 average), seven catches for 47 yards and one touchdown in two games. He had 10 yards rushing and 27 receiving Sunday at the time of his injury.
The 2018 Offensive Player of the Year had 1,307 yards rushing, 721 yards receiving on 91 catches and 15 total touchdowns as a rookie last season.
The team also said that linebacker Alec Ogletree would miss the second half with a hamstring injury.
