Bills To Ink Former NY Giants Running Back Devonta Freeman To Practice Squad

The Buffalo Bills are signing former Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants running back Devonta Freeman to their practice squad, taking the spot of rookie Zack Moss who injured his ankle three days ago against the Indianapolis Colts.

Freeman was released off injured reserve by the Giants back on January 7th after missing time with an ankle injury.

He put up 172 yards on 54 carries for the Giants during the five games he played with them this past season.

Moss ran the ball seven times for 21 yards this past week in the AFC Wild Card win over the Colts that puts them in a position to be back at home Saturday night in a Divisional Playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The report on Freeman said he likely won’t play in the playoff game this weekend for the Bills, but if the team moves on to play the winner of the Cleveland-Kansas City game Sunday he might be able to get a helmet for the AFC Title game.

For now the team has T.J. Yeldon, Antonio Williams and Christian Wade to fill in for the injured Moss this Saturday at Bills Stadium.
