INJURY ROUNDS

Saquon Barkley | Back injury | Day-to-Day | Probable Week 6

Barkley hurdled the sideline to cross the plane of the goal line on a long touchdown play but landed awkwardly. The immediate fear was for a right knee injury as his leg shifted when he landed. But Barkley also twisted his back on the landing and was seen splinting over his side on the bench after the play. Pat Shurmur told reporters after the game Barkley's knee and ankle were fine. While Barkley seems to have avoided a serious injury, I'll update with any unexpected news on Monday.

Jay Ajayi | Left ACL tear | Out for Season

Ajayi didn't return to yesterday's game after fumbling in the third quarter. He didn't reach for either knee on the play and no injury was reported after the game. Ian Rapoport is reporting the injury occurred while pass blocking earlier in the game. Ajayi previously had an ACL reconstruction of his right knee in 2011. He will have surgery this week and is out for the season.
