New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley admitted Thursday he does indeed have a high ankle sprain.

Barkley, who revealed the injury in an interview with Amazon, was hurt in Sunday's 31-28 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. It was initially believed to be an ordinary sprain.

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter this week that Barkley was expected to miss three weeks.

Barkley told Amazon he will benefit from the 11 days between Thursday night and the Giants' Week 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 2.
