Jabrill Peppers has transverse process fracture; Golden Tate in concussion protocol

The Giants announced that safety Jabrill Peppers has a transverse process fracture and wide receiver Golden Tate is in the concussion protocol.

Peppers was hurt returning a kickoff late in the first half and Tate suffered his injury when he absorbed a hard landing on his touchdown reception.

Shurmur said he does not expect Peppers' injury to be season-ending.

"My understanding, his too, in terms of the evaluation of it, as I knew yesterday he had a sore back," Shurmur said. "I guess he can return, it's kind of relative to pain tolerance. So, I would say no.

"Today, obviously, we're less than a day removed from the game, so he's sore today. We don't practice until Wednesday, so we'll just have to see what the week brings."
