3. Saquon Barkley now dealing with an arm injury is concerning

You've got to give credit to Saquon Barkley, as no one can question his toughness. However, he just can't seem to stay fully healthy for the Giants. After missing three weeks with a high-ankle sprain, Barkley returned for the Week 6 game against the Bills and he looked strong. On Sunday, Barkley looked good early, but he suffered a left arm injury and it was bothering him throughout.

You could see Barkley in a ton of pain at times and there were multiple times where he'd motion to the bench to come out for a play or two because of his injury. Despite this, Barkley still toughed it out and was able to help this team out whenever his number was called. His highlight for the day was of course his long TD reception, which put the G-Men up 14-0:

In the second half, however, Barkley (who also had a costly fumble) wasn't running with the same kind of strength and he was barely able to move the ball forward whenever he got the ball from Taylor. Fans can only hope this isn't going to be a serious injury for Barkley, as the last thing the Pro Bowler needs to is be dealing with another ailment.
