Giants LB Lorenzo Carter out for season with ruptured Achilles

  Giants LB Lorenzo Carter out for season with ruptured Achilles It’s a tough blow for the Georgia product, who will enter the final year of his rookie deal next season. Carter went down with a non-contact injury during their 37-34 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, so the diagnosis isn’t too surprising. No one on the Giants has more than two sacks this season, and generating pressure has been an issue. Fellow outside linebackers Markus Golden and Kyler Fackrell will take on even more important roles moving forward.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

The New York Giants say they are investigating a video in which quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley can be seen hanging out maskless in a club, according to SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano.

The video, taken from an Instagram story, started making the round Saturday morning, a day and a half after the Giants’ embarrassing loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to Vacchiano, the video was taken last night. The two players, plus some teammates, reportedly had dinner together in a private room at a New York City restaurant, then were invited to have a drink at a bar closed to the public.

Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley clearly identified in video

The bar does appear to contain only a few people in the video, but the players are clearly not wearing masks. In one video, Jones can be seen receiving a drink from an unidentified woman.

Jones and Barkely are clearly identified in one image on the story, with the caption “Rockin wit Danny dimes and Saquon.”

Video poster claims Giants video is a year old

The video was apparently posted by a fellow known as DJ Lugghead, who served as the group’s driver that night, according to the New York Post. The video has since been taken down from Lugghead’s Instagram story.

Lugghead told the Post that the video was actually a year old, but the Post, as well as Vacchiano, report that is not the case:

DJ Lugghead, the original poster, told The Post the video was from last October and not Friday night. That turns out to be untrue.

“It was all posts from last year,” the DJ said. “It’s a memory that popped up from a year ago. That’s why I posted it.”

The DJ declined to comment further when contacted again and informed of The Post’s reporting.

Lugghead isn’t the first acquaintance of an athlete to hastily pull the “old video” defense amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as rapper Jack Harlow said the same after posting a video with Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams at an Atlanta strip club earlier this year.

Will Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley face NFL punishment?

If the Giants determine the Jones and Barkley were indeed out with teammates — and evidence points to that being the truth — the players or team could be facing some kind of punishment from the NFL.

The league explicitly banned gatherings outside a team facility earlier this month, and warned that violations of the COVID-19 policy could result in the loss of draft picks or even a game forfeiture. While that policy was essentially crafted in response to Tennessee Titans players holding informal workouts after an outbreak, we’ll see if the NFL thinks a group of players partying together at a bar qualifies.
