Watch Now:

Barkley said after hyperextending his left elbow during Sunday's 14-7 win over the Commanders that he will "be alright" for the Giants' Week 8 game against the Jets, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Barkley logged 21 carries for 77 yards and caught three of four targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the win over Washington. His score came after hyperextending his elbow earlier in the contest, an injury that occurred during the game's second drive. Barkley was able to finish the contest with a sleeve on his left arm and elbow, which lends credence to the notion that he again will be able to play through the injury unabated when the Giants face the Jets. Barkley also reiterated after Sunday's win that he wants to remain in New York as the NFL's Oct. 31 trade deadline draws closer.
