UNDATED (AP) -- The heavily underdog New York Giants are going to be without their top two running backs and their two leading receivers against the New England Patriots Thursday night.
Coach Pat Shurmur says Saquon (SAY'-kwahn) Barkley will miss a third straight week with a high ankle sprain and Wayne Gallman will be out with a concussion. Wide receiver Sterling Shepard and tight end Evan Engram have also been ruled out.
Barkley was hurt on Sept. 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has practiced on a limited basis in three straight workouts. By sitting out, Barkley will get an extra 10 days to rehab for a possible return on Oct. 20 against the Arizona Cardinals.
