Unfortunately for the New York Giants, things are looking a bit tricky heading into their Monday Night Football showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs. This game is on the road, just a reminder.

And for this road contest, New York will be without a pair of key studs on offense, most notably running back Saquon Barkley.

Barkley is dealing with an ankle injury. He was hoping to give things a go for this primetime showdown, but he's not ready yet. Clearly the staff doesn't want to rush him back, which is probably the right call. Now, things indeed are tougher for NY going up against KC.
