I need help identifying a rodent species

Can anyone identify this rodent? It does not have the tail of a typical squirrel I see in NYC, and the ears seem larger.

My bet is still Eastern Gray Squirrel, with a tail injury, but the best place to get help with a species ID is at https://www.inaturalist.org/

Good luck!

Thank you. I did check iNaturalist which also identified it as a squirrel but was not specific about which type. I think it is some kind of Ground Squirrel as the tail seems to match it.
