RB: Saquon Barkley

NJ Advance Media's Zack Rosenblatt said Saquon Barkley (ankle) was not at Friday's practice and will be out for Week 9 against the Raiders.

Barkley will get this week and the team's Week 10 bye to rest his injured ankle ahead of New York's Week 11 game against the Bucs. Devontae Booker will continue operating as the Giants' workhorse back this week against a run-funnel Vegas defense. Booker leads the Giants with a 30 percent opportunity share (carries plus targets) over their past three games. If Barkley drafters can survive the next couple weeks, they could get their first-round pick back for the stretch run.
