The sensational running back was helped off the field on the first play of the second quarter. Barkley ripped off his helmet, writhing in pain on the Bears sideline, grabbing at his right knee after a six-yard run to open the quarter. Teammates helped the running back across to the field to the Giants bench. Barkley couldn't put pressure on his right leg.
The RB was carted to the locker room. Barkley punched the cart as he was driven off, perhaps indicating the severity of the injury, the story said. The team stated that Barkley had been taken in for X-rays on his knee and would undergo further testing Monday. If Barkley has to miss time, Gallman could see early down work with Lewis taking over his usual passing-down role.
The Denver Broncos are experiencing some trouble this Sunday in their matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, as quarterback Drew Lock returned to the locker room after sustaining a right shoulder injury. Shortly after, the team ruled him out for the remainder of the game.
Lock immediately headed to the locker room after sustaining the injury, and was replaced by Driskel. Driskel started against the Steelers as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17 of the 2018 season, and spent the 2019 season with the Detroit Lions.
The Indianapolis Colts may have suffered another serious injury on offense, as wide receiver Parris Campbell was carted off the field in the first quarter during the Colts' Week 2 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
Campbell took a handoff from Philip Rivers, and was met by Vikings safety Harrison Smith, who hit him hard low around his left knee. Campbell immediately grabbed at his knee and remained on the ground. He had to be carted off the field. The Colts ruled him questionable to return. Campbell was likely a popular pickup in your league this week, now leaving owners scrambling once again. Pittman could see an uptick in snaps if Campbell does miss time.
