(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)New York Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley looked fantastic in his first NFL preseason game last week, rushing for 43 yards on four carries that included an impressive 39-yard scamper to kick off his career. Unfortunately, it looks like he may have suffered some kind of injury this Monday at practice.Barkley was reportedly running a wheel route for fellow rookie Kyle Lauletta and extended a bit to haul the pass in. According to reporters on-scene, Barkley might have tweaked something in his leg.He’s reportedly got his left leg wrapped as a result. Giants fans are holding their breath.Barkley was the No. 2 overall pick in this past April’s NFL Draft. The only player taken in front of him was Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.Keeping Barkley healthy will no doubt be a priority for the Giants moving forward. They can’t afford to have their prized draft pick injured before the season begins.Saquon Barkley was checked by trainers after this big play. Looked as if he came up a bit lame at the end. He was walking around afterward but does have his left leg wrapped now. pic.twitter.com/WmSfMnTd6i— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) August 13, 2018Play may have come with a cost: Barkley’s left leg is now wrapped.
