Avant-match Giants c. Buccaneers
Barring an unexpected turn of events, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be able to count on the services of tight end Rob Gronkowski in Monday night’s game, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Bucs (6-3) will face the New York Giants at 8 p.m., a matchup that will be featured on RDS, as well as on RDS Direct.
Gronkowski has been out of play since Week 8 with a back injury. That week, he had joined the team after a four-game absence due to a rib injury.
The 32-year-old veteran is averaging 5.3 catches and 61.3 yards in his three full games played in 2021, with a record of four touchdowns.
According to ESPN, cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting will also be in the game against the G-Men. The latter has been out of the game since Week 1 with an elbow injury.
Back from a week off, the Giants (3-6) will find star running back Saquon Barkley. The latter was an uncertain case as he was injured early in Week 5’s game against Dallas.
