The New York Giants had one roller coaster of a Sunday. They started off their game against the Cardinals by being outscored 20-0, meaning that they had given up 60 points through 6 quarters of the 2023 NFL season without scoring a single point. But they turned things around in the second half to complete one of the bigger comebacks you’ll see this season, before even further disaster struck during their run.

They scored the final 24 points of the game, eventually defeating Arizona 31-28 after looking like potentially the worst team to ever take an NFL field through two weeks. They avoid dropping to the dreaded 0-2, but they suffered a loss that will keep one of their best players out for at least a week or two, and perhaps more.
During the 4th quarter comeback, Barkley took a handoff and ran into a pile, eventually having his leg twisted up and landed on by an opposing player. The running back writhed on the ground in pain before hobbling off the field with some assistance, and never returned to the game.

It has been revealed that he suffered a low ankle sprain, and is considered day-t0-day, though he will likely miss an extended period.
