Barkley had just come back from a torn ACL he suffered in the second week of the 2020 season and appeared to be fully healthy after a dominant performance in an upset win over the New Orleans Saints last week. The latest injury is a bad break for the star running back who won the 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year and has recently run into a spate of injuries that have hampered him the last few years.
