New York Giants TE Evan Engram and WR Golden Tate will not be practicing in full Wednesday ahead of their matchup vs. the Green Bay Packers in Week 13.

Engram was seen working off to the side in practice, while Tate hadn’t been spotted yet. Tate is currently in concussion protocol and if he’s unable to get on the practice field this week, his chances of playing against the Packers are slim. As for Engram, he’s been dealing with a foot injury and it also doesn’t look like he’s ready to return after missing Week 12’s loss to the Bears. Rhett Ellison (concussion) was also working off to the side with Engram at practice.

If all three are out for Week 13, the Packers D/ST would be in a good spot. As for the Giants’ lineup, Kaden Smith would likely operate as the every-down tight end again. Smith caught a TD in Week 12 vs. the Bears. Scott Simonson would also see some snaps and a target or two. If Tate is ruled out Sterling Shepard could work out of the slot with Darius Slayton on the outside.
