The exciting finishes in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season were matched with a wave of serious injuries.
Among those who went down Sunday was Saquon Barkley, who suffered a torn ACL in the second quarter of the New York Giants’ eventual loss to the Chicago Bears. The star running back soon will undergo surgery to repair his knee and will be sidelined for the remainder of the current campaign.
Not long after suffering the injury, Barkley deleted all but one post from his Instagram page. The 23-year-old then added a new photo Monday, which drew reactions from a slew of NFL players.
Odell Beckham Jr.: It’s the only way…..
Cam Newton: -1ØVĒ🤟🏾
Baker Mayfield: Yes sir it is… praying for you brother
Joe Mixon: Speedy recovery Brodie! The comeback gone be real💯 ✊🏽
Josh Allen: 🙏🏼

Barkley was not the only superstar running back to sustain an injury in Week 2. Christian McCaffrey is expected to be out of action for multiple weeks due to an ankle injury.
