Saquon Barkley is seeking a second opinion on his ankle.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported on NFL Now the New York Giants running back is scheduled to see Dr. Robert Anderson on Wednesday for an evaluation of his high ankle sprain, per a source informed of the situation.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen was first to report the news.

As Pelissero notes, Barkley is continuing to gather more information from experts on how to proceed going forward.
