Report: Giants fear Saquon tore ACL; updates on other PSU alums in NFL

Saquon Barkley suffered a right knee injury and had to be helped off the field during the New York Giants’ game Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Reports are that Barkley may have torn an ACL.

The running back went down after a run to the sideline early in the second quarter. He pounded his right fist into the ground in pain and frustration, then took of his helmet as he lay on the ground.

Barkley did not put any weight on his injured leg as he was helped off the field. He later was carted to the locker room.

The Giants revealed Barkley was undergoing X-rays and would be evaluated further Monday.

Barkley was held to 6 yards on 15 carries in the Giants’ opener last week against the Steelers. He carried four times for 28 yards in Sunday’s game against the Bears before getting injured.
