The New York Giants suffered a slew of injuries during their 20-44 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

During the first quarter of action, running back Saquon Barkley had to make his way off the field after incurring an ankle injury. Quarterback Daniel Jones was the next casualty, suffering a concussion late on in the second quarter. Finally, wide receiver Kenny Golladay had no choice but to abandon play at halftime as the result of a hyperextended knee.

As a result of these latest injuries, the Giants’ offensive lineup is now severely shorthanded, with only four of their 11 Week 1 starters currently available for selection.

Following the Cowboys game, Barkley was spotted sporting a boot and crutches. According to ESPN, the player is dealing with a left ankle sprain. The extent of the injury will be expanded upon once the team learns more.

Jones was reported to be in “good spirits” following the clash that led to his concussion. Coach Joe Judge stated that only time will tell when Jones will make a return to the team.

Golladay is currently awaiting more news to determine the extent of his injury.
