New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers and wide receiver Golden Tate both suffered setbacks during Sunday’s loss to the Bears.

Things aren’t looking great for the New York Giants, but when have they in the past two months? Big Blue dropped their seventh consecutive game on Sunday, falling 19-14 to the Chicago Bears.

They’re now 2-9, as the defeat solidified their third straight losing season.

Along with the loss, the Giants additionally suffered numerous setbacks. Announced via the team’s official Twitter account, safety Jabrill Peppers has a transverse process fracture.

Veteran wideout Golden Tate, on the other hand, has entered the concussion protocol. Tate apparently suffered the injury during his touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.


Peppers left the loss to the Bears early, hence the increased playing time for rookie defensive back Julian Love.

The first-year player out of Notre Dame racked up his first career tackle, pass-defense, and interception. The pick was in the second half off a lousy throw from Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

Peppers racked up five combined tackles and one tackle-for-loss in the game. He also returned his first kickoff of the season, one that went for 23 yards. Peppers is expected to miss 1-3 weeks.

Tate caught three balls (seven targets) for 33 yards and one touchdown, his fourth score of the year. It’s unclear if he’ll be good to go for the team’s upcoming matchup with the Green Bay Packers this Sunday.

Tate has yet to miss a game this season due to injury. His four missed matchups to start the year were because of his suspension for violating the league’s substance policy.
