New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is not traveling with the team to face the Washington Football Team this Sunday. The team confirmed that news late Saturday afternoon.

Tate, and his wife, publicly expressed their frustration with his role in the Giants' offense over the last week. Tate has not seen many snaps, nor passes, come his way over the first eight games of the season.

Giants head coach Joe Judge said that discipline for Tate's outburst would be handled internally, and it seems the situation has progressed to the point where Tate is a healthy scratch from Sunday's game.

There was speculation that the Giants were open to trading Tate before Tuesday's trade deadline, but a potential deal never materialized.

There has also been speculation as to whether or not Tate will be a Giant after this season.

The Giants originally signed Tate to a four-year, $37.5 million ($22.95 million guaranteed) contract in the 2019 off-season.
