New York Giants lose RB Saquon Barkley, QB Daniel Jones, WR Kenny Golladay in loss to Cowboys
ARLINGTON, Texas — One by one, the New York Giants top offensive weapons went down on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
Running back Saquon Barkley left with an ankle injury in the first quarter, quarterback Daniel Jones suffered a concussion late in the second quarter and wide receiver Kenny Golladay exited at halftime with what he termed a hyperextended knee.
Barkley and Jones were both carted off during Sunday’s 44-20 loss to the Cowboys and missed the remainder of the contest. It left the Giants without seven of their 11 Week 1 offensive starters because of injury.
“It is crazy just looking in [at it],” Golladay said of the string of injuries the Giants suffered in one half on Sunday.
Barkley has a left ankle “sprain,” a source told ESPN. He was seen in a boot and on crutches after the contest. The full severity of the injury will be determined after further testing Monday. If the results are positive as expected, the likelihood is the Giants’ star running back would miss a “couple weeks.”
The Giants host the Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers the next two weeks.
“He’s very humble,” said backup running back Devontae Booker, who stepped in for Barkley. “So he may be back next week. Who knows?”
Jones was “in good spirits” following the contest, according to a source close to the quarterback. He got the wind knocked out of him and suffered the concussion after colliding helmet to helmet with Cowboys linebacker Jabril Cox trying to get into the end zone before halftime.
The third-year quarterback, who had been playing the best football of his career early this season, had a lengthy conversation with his parents outside the locker room during the final minutes of the contest. He also spoke with coach Joe Judge after the game.
“I’m not going to get into any medical diagnosis. I saw him in the locker room afterwards right there. Just checked on him,” Judge said. “In terms of where he’ll go next week, I don’t have an answer for you right now. We’ll see where he goes….
