ESPN Devonta Freeman will miss his first game since signing with the New York Giants in September, as the running back has been ruled out of Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with an ankle injury. Freeman had not practiced this week. He had been the Giants' lead running back after joining the team following the season-ending injury to Saquon Barkley.

The Buccaneers have only ruled out wide receiver Chris Godwin for Monday Night's matchup against the New York Giants. Three players that had been limited in practice this week, Rob Gronkowski, Scotty Miller and Antoine Winfield Jr., all practiced fully on Saturday. Jason Pierre-Paul and Ndamukong Suh sat out on maintenance days.

This tied into a theme that sixth-round rookie wideout John Hightower brought up earlier in the week, members of the young group helping one another. Right now Ward, at 25, is the oldest member of the corps that will take the field against Dallas. Jackson and Alshon Jeffery remain sidelined, Jeffery with a calf strain suffered while he was trying to come back from foot surgery last December.

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley has had surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee. Giants coach Joe Judge confirmed the surgery on Saturday without giving specifics. Judge said Ronnie Barnes, the team's senior vice president of medical services and head trainer, spoke with the surgeon in Los Angeles and said the procedure seemingly went well.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-2) and New York Giants (1-6) are having two very different seasons. They face off on Monday Night Football in Week 8 of the NFL season. Will Tampa Bay roll to a win in New York?

"As an outside backer with his relentless personality, he is going to make plays for us," said Cardinals DC Vance Joseph.

In these cases, it’s critical team leaders and veterans ensure the roster is ready for everything the other NFL team has for them so they come into the next game riding a winning streak, not seeking redemption. So, any captain or veteran would do this week, right? But the right one is important, and obviously the X-Factor for Week 8 has to be outside linebacker, Jason Pierre-Paul.

Pittsburgh (6-0) at Baltimore (5-1) Brutal. As in the kind of hits fans will see in the NFL's most physical (and probably best) rivalry. Each defense and special teams sets the tone early and doesn't relent.

EAST RUTHERFORD - Saquon Barkley's road to recovery from a serious knee injury began well before the Giants' star running back underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon. It's the reason why Barkley waited 40 days between the day he was hurt against the Chicago Bears in Week 2 and actually going under the knife for the procedure that was performed by renowned specialist Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache at Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute on the West Coast.
