It’s a tough break for Jacobs, as the 24-year-old was establishing himself as a starter. After starting seven of his 14 games in 2019, the 2018 seventh-rounder had started two of his three appearances in 2020, compiling three tackles and one tackle for a loss.

The Giants selected Barkley No. 2 overall in the 2018 NFL draft.

Replacing Barkley will not be easy. In addition to having Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman on the roster, plus veteran Rod Smith on the practice squad, the Giants had former Atlanta Falcons star Devonta Freeman in for a visit that began Monday.

There will be questions regarding Barkley's ability to recover and regain his rare physical ability, and the prospects of what his Giants' future looks like, not to mention the size and merit of a second contract will be debated.

Before Sunday, Barkley and the Giants were seemingly on the same page headed for a potential lucrative extension this offseason that would rival that secured by Carolina's Christian McCaffrey (4 years, $64 million).

That timetable is undoubtedly altered at the moment, and there is uncertainty what the next step would be.

"It's going to take all of us," Lewis said Sunday. "We got Wayne, myself, we all gotta step up. Obviously, you know, Saquon is one of the best running backs in this league, so nobody's going to be able to do what he does, what he's done. We gotta do what we can do, be ourselves and do whatever the coaches ask us to do and work hard every day."
