Giants RB Freeman ruled out vs. Buccaneers
New York Giants running back Devonta Freeman has been ruled out of Monday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to an ankle injury.
Freeman sustained the injury during the team’s 22-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 22. Wayne Gallman is expected to be the main ball carrier against the Buccaneers.
Freeman (172 yards on 54 carries) emerged as the primary running back after star Saquon Barkley was lost with a season-ending knee injury.
Gallman has rushed for 110 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries this season.
The Giants also ruled out safety Adrian Colbert (shoulder). Receiver C.J. Board (concussion) is questionable.
Wideout Sterling Shepard is slated to play. He has been slowed by shoulder and toe injuries.
In addition, left guard Will Hernandez is sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19.
