New York Giants star running back Saquon Barkley is doubtful to play in Monday night's game against the visiting Seattle Seahawks.

Coach Brian Daboll said early on Saturday that Barkley was expected to be a game-time decision.

Barkley was a limited participant in practice later on Saturday as he works through an ankle injury he sustained during New York's game-winning drive in a 31-28 road win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 17. He then sat out the Giants' 30-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers four days later.

Despite missing that game, Barkley leads New York (1-2) with 155 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns.

Should Barkley sit out again, the Giants will lean on running backs Matt Brieda and Gary Brightwell against the Seahawks (2-1).

Daboll also announced Saturday that offensive tackle Andrew Thomas will miss his third straight game due to a hamstring injury. The team officially ruled him out later on Saturday.

"Andrew won't (play on Monday)," Daboll said. "He practiced a little bit in individual two days ago, just wasn't feeling right, didn't practice him yesterday. He won't make the game."

Josh Ezeudu will play in place of Thomas again for the Giants.
