Saquon Barkley (ankle) reportedly unlikely to return for Giants Thursday

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) is unlikely to play in Thursday night's Week 6 game against the New England Patriots, reports ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

What It Means:

Barkley returned to a limited practice last Friday, less than two weeks after suffering a high-ankle sprain, but Ranaan says it's still looking too early for the super sophomore to be cleared for game action. Wayne Gallman (concussion) is also going to sit, so undrafted rookie Jon Hilliman and fullback Elijhaa Penny will handle rushing duties for the Giants in a brutal Thursday night matchup. Barkley is on track for a return in Week 7.

The Giants take on a Patriots defense in Week 6 that is 3rd in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game and has only given up two touchdowns through five games.
