RB - NYG - IR
Week 12 Outlook
Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) has been placed on the IR and is officially out at least three weeks.
Freeman was hoping to return in Week 10 but he re-aggravated his ankle during practice, and now he’ll head to the IR and miss three weeks. Wayne Gallman will lead the charge out of the backfield for the Giants, and he’ll split snaps with Dion Lewis and Alfred Morris. Gallman is nothing more than a flex this week in a tough matchup against the Eagles.
Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) is once again absent from Friday's practice.
Freeman appears likely to miss his third straight game ahead of the Giants' bye week. Wayne Gallman will once again be an RB3 against the Eagles on Sunday.
Giants' RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) aggravated the ankle injury he's been dealing with since Week 7 but remains hopeful to play against the Eagles on Sunday, per Ian Rapoport.
Freeman has been pedestrian in the five games he's started filling in for injured star RB Saquon Barkley. Averaging just 3.2 YPC and one rushing touchdown, his involvement in the Giants' passing game is limited with only seven receptions for 58 yards on ten targets for the season. Continue monitoring Freeman's status heading into Friday's practice. If he is cleared to play, it remains a difficult matchup against the Eagles' run defense.
Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) walked off the practice field Thursday while partaking in individual drills. His outlook for Week 10 is looking questionable.
Freeman has missed the last two games with an ankle injury, and it seems he may have aggravated it in Thursday’s practice based on this report. If Freeman can’t go Sunday vs. the Eagles, expect Wayne Gallman to once again see an uptick in volume, making him a solid flex play.
New York Giants running back Devonta Freeman was listed as a limited participant on the team's estimated practice report.
The Giants only had a walkthrough today, but still ended up listing Freeman as a limited participant. While this is not a good sign for his Week 10 availability, a return to the actual practice field in the coming days would suggest that he has a good chance to suit up against the Eagles. Freeman will likely return to lead back duties when active.
