Earlier: The New York Giants' worst nightmare is happening. Saquon Barkley is out of the game with an apparent injury.

On a drive late in the second quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Barkley was hit near the sideline. He landed awkwardly and came up hobbling.

Barkley had to be helped off the field and into the locker room prior to the end of the half. He appeared to be in obvious pain.

Barkley topped 100 yards rushing in the Giants' first two games but had been bottled up thus far today by a tough Tampa Bay Buccaneer defense. It looked like Barkley suffered either a knee or ankle injury, but whatever it was, it has caused Giants fans to hold their breath. It seems like Barkley will be out the rest of the game, and the Giants must hope it isn't anything too serious. Stay tuned. Update: ESPN's Jordan Raanan is calling it a left ankle injury.

We'll see what other info comes out.

Update: Barkley is officially out.

Linebacker Alec Ogletree hurt his hamstring in the second quarter and will also be out for the rest of the game.
