Who was questionable heading into Monday Night Football in Week 11?

There is interest abound surrounding the practice reports of both teams this week. With Saquon Barkley returning to practice after the Giants’ bye, fantasy managers were curious about his status. Both he and fellow running back Devontae Booker were questionable.

The absence of Sterling Shepard is a concern. Still, New York’s other main receivers in Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, and John Ross were all absent from the Giants’ injury report following the bye week. They also lost Logan Ryan to the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, and Nate Ebner is already among the inactives for NFL Week 11.

The intrigue in the Buccaneers’ injury report surrounded the status of Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, and Antonio Brown. However, Brown never looked likely to suit up and did not practice all week.

Godwin was limited on Wednesday and Thursday before being a full participant on Friday. He is not listed on the injury report. In contrast, Gronkowski was a full participant on Wednesday and Thursday before being a non-participant on Friday and ending the week listed as questionable.
