Devonta Freeman: Joining Bills' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants cut 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) looked good at Friday's practice and appears close to a return, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

The 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants designated 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants reinstated 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants are placing 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle/hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official website reports.

Freeman returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant but then aggravated his ankle injury during Thursday's session. It's possible he'll be ready after a Week 11 bye, but for now he'll be out at least one more game. Wayne Gallman figures to lead the Giants backfield, with Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis also mixing in.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Aggravates ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Officially limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Thursday's session began with an ominous tone when Freeman was seen leaving the field with a member of the Giants' training staff, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Freeman has missed back-to-back games due to an ankle injury and may be in store for another DNP considering Thursday's development. If he takes a seat Sunday against the Eagles, the Giants backfield will be the domain of Wayne Gallman, Dion Lewis and likely Alfred Morris.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Leaves Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman, who's been dealing with an ankle issue, left the field with a trainer during Thursday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Freeman logged a limited practice session Wednesday, so we'll have to see how the Giants list him Thursday and if this news is indicative of the running back having suffered a setback. If Freeman is unable to go Sunday against the Eagles, Wayne Gallman, Dion Lewis and Alfred Morris would presumably be the team's Week 10 backfield options.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Limited again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Despite wrapping up last week with back-to-back limited practices, Freeman was ruled out for this past Sunday's game in Washington. As a result, getting in some activity Wednesday isn't necessarily a sign that a return to action is nigh. In any case, Freeman's status bears watching in the coming days to see if he has a chance to suit up this weekend against the Eagles. If he misses a third straight contest, though, the Giants are poised to roll with Wayne Gallman, Dion Lewis and Alfred Morris out of the backfield.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Out another week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Washington, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

With Freeman sidelined for a second straight game, the Giants are left with Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis on the active roster and Alfred Morris on the practice squad. Gallman led the group in carries (12) and snap share (43 percent) during Monday's loss to Tampa Bay, but Morris and Lewis also had offensive roles. Freeman's return to limited practice participation Thursday suggests he has a shot to return for Week 10 against the Eagles.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Limited in return to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Freeman's activity level was forecast after he took part in individual drills, per Dan Duggan of The Athletic. It remains to be seen if Freeman will be able to get all the way back in time for Sunday's game at Washington, but if he doesn't the Giants will lean on Wayne Gallman, Dion Lewis and practice squad member Alfred Morris out of the backfield.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Freeman hasn't practiced since suffering an ankle injury Week 7 at Philadelphia, but he still has two chances to prove his health in advance of Sunday's matchup with Washington. If he's unable to get all the way back, he'll yield his workload to a combination of Wayne Gallman, Dion Lewis and practice squad member Alfred Morris.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) will not play in Monday's matchup with the Buccaneers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' digital media team reports.

Freeman was unable to practice all week, but the team was still holding out hope he would be able to suit up Sunday. However, the Giants have ultimately opted to err on the side of caution. As a result of the veteran back's absence, look for Wayne Gallman to get the start in the backfield, while Dion Lewis should also see some work.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Status still in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) "has a chance to play" according to coach Joe Judge, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

We'll know more following the release of the team's final practice report later in the day, but for now this seems optimistic given the veteran running back has yet to practice all week. If Freeman can't suit up for the Monday night contest against the Buccaneers, expect Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis to shoulder the offensive burden.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Misses practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) missed Friday's practice and doesn't appear likely to play in Monday's game against Tampa Bay, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Freeman got some extra time to recover after he was injured in a Thursday game, but it appears the three additional days won't be enough to allow for a recovery. Wayne Gallman is expected to serve as the Giants' lead ball carrier, though it can't be taken as a certainty unless the team officially rules Freeman out. The final injury report will be released at some point Saturday.

Giants' Devonta Freeman: Held out of practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Freeman tweaked his ankle last Thursday at Philadelphia, which didn't allow him to return to the game and also is keeping him sidelined to begin Week 8 prep. Instead, he worked out on the side Thursday, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic. Fortunately for the seven-year pro, Freeman has a pair of opportunities to get back on the field in advance of Monday's game versus the Buccaneers. That said, if Freeman is limited or absent, he'll yield RB reps to Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis.
