    Devonta Freeman: Joining Bills' practice squad

    Devonta Freeman (ankle) is signing with the Buffalo practice squad, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.With Zack Moss (ankle) out for the rest of the playoffs, Buffalo has only T.J. Yeldon and 32-year-old Taiwan Jones as backfield options behind Devin Singletary on the active roster. This signing suggests Freeman has recovered from the ankle injury that prevented him from playing for the Giants after Week 7, though he won't necessarily be promoted to the active roster during Buffalo's playoff run. Yeldon is still the best bet to work behind Singletary this Saturday against the Ravens.

    Devonta Freeman: Parts ways with Giants

    The Giants cut Devonta Freeman (ankle) from injured reserve Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.The Giants signed Freeman to replace Saquon Barkley (torn ACL) back in September, and he appeared in five games (four starts) with the team before landing on IR due to an ankle issue and paving the way for Wayne Gallman to claim the top role. In his five appearances, Freeman carried the ball 54 times for 172 yards (3.2 YPC) and a touchdown while also catching seven of 10 targets for 58 yards. Once he's fully healthy, the 28-year-old veteran will be free to search for a chance elsewhere in the league, though he'll very likely have to settle for a backup role.

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Looks comfortable in practice

    Devonta Freeman (ankle) looked good at Friday's practice and appears close to a return, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.The New York Giants designated Freeman to return from injured reserve earlier Friday, so he could have an outside chance at being activated ahead of Sunday's game against Cleveland. Whether Freeman rejoins the active roster this week or ahead of either of the Giants' final two games of the regular season, the 28-year-old may have to settle for a smaller role than he enjoyed prior to suffering the ankle injury. Wayne Gallman has done solid work as the Giants' lead back for the past month and a half and may have leapfrogged a healthy Freeman on the depth chart.

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Returning to practice

    The New York Giants designated Devonta Freeman (ankle) to return from injured reserve Friday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.The 28-year-old was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday and has now been cleared to return to the practice field a day later. One day of practice likely won't be enough for Freeman to gain clearance for Sunday's game against the Browns, but he could still be activated ahead of the final two games of the season.

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Comes off COVID-19 list

    The New York Giants reinstated Devonta Freeman (ankle) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.Though Freeman has cleared all COVID-19-related protocols, he remains on injured reserve and has yet to be designated for a return. Until that happens, Freeman won't be able to practice with the team, and given the time he's already missed with the ankle injury, it appears safe to rule him out for a return Sunday against the Browns. Instead, Freeman will likely attempt to increase his activity over the next several days with the hope of making it back to action for either of the Giants' final two regular-season contests.

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Working on side at practice

    Devonta Freeman (ankle) worked out on the side with a trainer during Wednesday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.Freeman looks like he'll be reinstated from the reserve/COVID-19 list in the near future, given that he's returned to the team's facility. That said, he's still on injured reserve, and the New York Giants would have to designated him for a return before he can even resume practicing with the team. Wayne Gallman has provided New York's running game with a much-needed spark in recent weeks, so Freeman (3.2 yards per carry in five games) is far from a lock to reclaim the No. 1 gig even if he rejoins the roster at some point in the final three weeks of the regular season.

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Devonta Freeman (ankle/hamstring) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.Freeman either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person. The veteran running back will need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to the New York Giants' facilities. Freeman was already on injured reserve with ankle and hamstring injuries, so it remains unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup. Wayne Gallman will keep leading the backfield while Dion Lewis and Alfred Morris rotate in.

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Headed for IR

    The New York Giants are placing Devonta Freeman (ankle) on injured reserve, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.Freeman can now be ruled out for Weeks 10 and 12, sandwiched around the Giants' bye. He'd been hoping to return for Sunday's game against the Eagles before he aggravated his ankle injury during practice Thursday. Wayne Gallman is now set up for at least two more games in the lead role, with Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis also likely to get some touches. The earliest possible date for Freeman to return is Dec. 6 at Seattle (Week 13).

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Out for Sunday

Wayne Gallman figures to lead the Giants backfield, with Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis also mixing in.

    Giants' Devonta Freeman: Aggravates ankle injury

    Devonta Freeman was unable to finish Thursday's practice due to a "minor" aggravation of his ankle injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.Freeman was listed as 'limited' on Thursday's injury report, but seeing that he was forced off the field early due to an aggravation of the injury that's caused him to miss back-to-back games doesn't bode well. Rapoport notes that Freeman still hopes to return against the Eagles on Sunday, but it's reasonable to suspsect that his chances of playing could come down to how well he holds up during Friday's session. Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis remain on hand, and Alfred Morris could also bump up from the practice squad.
