    Where Is Saquon Barkley? Giants Running Back OUT Ahead of Seahawks Showdown

    Will Saquon Barkley play vs. the Seattle Seahawks? Here's the latest injury update on the New York Giants Pro Bowler.

    The New York Giants have a chance to even their record to 2-2 at MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. But will they have prized Pro Bowl running back Saquon Barkley ready to go?

    Is Saquon Barkley Playing Tonight?

    Unfortunately for the Giants, they will have to turn to another running back option at home.

    Per NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero on Monday evening, Barkley is listed as inactive for the MNF battle of 2022 NFC playoff teams as he continues to deal with an ankle ailment.

    For Barkley, this will officially mark his second straight missed game. He was not in the lineup for the Giants during their Sept. 21 Thursday Night Football road game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    He sustained the injury in the Giants’ 31-28 road win over the Arizona Cardinals.

    Via Fox 5 New York sports reporter Jennifer X. Williams on Sept. 30, Barkley revealed he had sustained a high ankle sprain. He believed that it wasn’t imperative for him to suit up on a bad ankle.

    “It’s my life. I make the decisions. I love this game, and I feel like if you’re able to play—go out there and play,” he said.

    Barkley was already seen in street clothes ahead of the Giants-Seahawks contest.

    Who Will the Giants Turn To Now vs. Seattle?

    With Barkley out, the Giants need to see improved production from their ground game against the 49ers.

    The leading rusher that evening in Santa Clara was Matt Breida, who only carried the ball four times for 17 yards. No other Giants running option, including quarterback Daniel Jones, surpassed five yards on the ground.

    The Giants already have the fewest rushing yards among NFC teams this season, with just 264 yards through the first three games.
