Giants ravaged by injuries in Week 5 The latest: Saquon Barkley - Ankle sprain. Likely couple weeks. More tests Monday. Kenny Golladay - Hyperextended knee. MRI Monday. Daniel Jones - Concussion.

Rookie Kadarius Toney saw 15 targets as he became the focal point of the passing game once Golladay left.
