ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is being held out of practice after straining his left leg a day earlier.

The star rookie was in uniform and watching as teammates went through drills Tuesday at the Detroit Lions' training facility.

On Monday, the No. 2 overall draft pick caught a swing pass out of the backfield and was injured either stretching to make the catch or running down the sideline after the catch.

Barkley seemed to be favoring his left leg as he walked back up the field. He put his hands on his knees and then went to the turf and lay on his back while the head trainer examined him. An ice pack was put on his leg.
