The amount of injuries the NY Giants are currently dealing with is something Brian Daboll should never have to go through again. On Friday, it was announced early in the day that quarterback Daniel Jones won't be able to suit up due to his neck injury.

With that, Tyrod Taylor will get the start against the Bills. On top of Jones, Andrew Thomas, John Michael Schmitz, Matt Peart AND Azeez Ojulari have been ruled out as well. There are other guys who may not be able to play either, as they're questionable ahead of the Week 6 showdown. Who knows if these three put the pads on or not:

3. RB Saquon Barkley

Let's be real here, the odds of the G-Men pulling off an upset against the Bills took a major hit as soon as Daboll said Danny Dimes will miss this one. In order for the Giants to have a prayer against the Bills, they'll need some superstar play from guys on offense. Enter Saquon Barkley? No. 26 is still trying to get back on the field following his high-ankle sprain suffered against the Cardinals.

Barkley has missed the past three games and to no surprise, the Giants are 0-3 without their Pro Bowl running back out on the field. Barkley is listed as questionable for the tilt against the Bills, but with the offensive line so banged up, could it be smart to just give him an extra week to try and get himself closer to 100 percent?

Next up on the schedule is a dance with the Washington Commanders at MetLife Stadium in Week 7. If we're being real again, Big Blue will likely be 1-5 heading into that contest. In order for the Giants to try and save the season, they'll need Barkley at his best the rest of the way. Barkley may want to play in Buffalo, but the wise choice may be to sit him for one more week.
