The MRI results for New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley are reportedly in, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Barkley, who suffered an injury during the Giants' crazy win at Tampa Bay on Sunday, reportedly has a high-ankle sprain.

This is the injury that was feared by the Giants when Barkley went down against the Bucs. He's going to miss a significant amount of time.

Barkley could reportedly be out up to two months.

"MRI revealed Giants’ RB Saquon Barkley suffered a high ankle sprain that could sideline him anywhere from 4-8 weeks, per source. Longer timeline is considered more likely; the Giants have a bye in week 11, which could give him eight weeks to recover and return for last six games," Schefter reports.

Barkley said after the win over the Bucs that he wasn't going to be out for the entire season, adding that he'd do everything he could to get back as soon as possible.

"I’m going to do whatever I can to get back as quickly as possible. Not for myself, but for my team. That’s what I continue to think about. I caught myself getting a little upset on the sideline just because I wasn’t able to be out there with those guys," Barkley told reporters.

The Giants (1-2) have some winnable games coming up, at least. New York hosts Washington and Minnesota over the next two weeks, before traveling to New England.
