After being benched last week by head coach Joe Judge for performance and effort, New York Giants veteran wide receiver Golden Tate suffered a knee injury in practice on Thursday, per Kim Jones of the NFL Network. The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport adds that Tate’s injury seems minor, but his MRI will provide a clearer picture.

This season, the veteran wideout has struggled to make an impact within the Giants’ offense. He only has 22 receptions (29 targets) for 226 yards and two touchdowns in seven games. These are some of the lowest marks in Tate’s career, since his second NFL season in 2011.

The Giants take on their NFC East division rival, the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. If they win, they’d be 3-7, with the same win total of the first place Eagles at 3-5-1. They have a real chance to win the division at this point, so they need all hands on deck and Tate is still a key part of the offense.
