The Giants will continue their trend of missing keys pieces of their team against the Packers this week, as Golden Tate, Jabrill Peppers, Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison and Zak DeOssie have been ruled out for Sunday's matchup.
DeOssie did not practice this week with knee/wrist injuries and was believed to potentially be heading to the injured reserve, but head coach Pat Shurmer said nothing was official yet and that DeOssie was held out of practice Friday to be evaluated--DeOssie was ruled out for Sunday's game a few hours later than the rest of the players.
Tate and Peppers were both injured in last week's loss to the Bears.
Tate suffered a concussion after hitting his head on the way down from his impressive touchdown catch. Peppers took a hit in the game and was later diagnosed with a transverse process fracture that will potentially end his season early.
Engram remains out with a mid-foot sprain that he had hoped wouldn't have kept him out this long--Engram hasn't seen the field since Week 9.
Ellison would have been the next option for the Giants to turn to with Engram still nursing his foot, but the tight end suffered a concussion against the Jets during Week 10 and still is unfit to return.
With the Giants looking to halt their longest losing streak in recent memory, doing so against the 8-3 Packers without these guys ready to play will make the task even harder than it already would have been.
