Joe Judge said he's still got decisions to make concerning Golden Tate and his status for Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team.

Tate was held out of practice for disciplinary reasons on Wednesday and wasn't seen doing much during Thursday's practice either, after the veteran wide receiver was seen yelling "throw me the damn ball" at the sideline during Monday's loss to the Buccaneers. He shared the same sentiments into a camera after catching the final touchdown of the game.

"We still have an entire day of practice to go through today, so I'll evaluate everything and make decisions on the back end of today on what we're going to do going through the weekend," Judge said on how he's handling Tate.

Tate's wife, Elise, took to Instagram after the game and said her husband was being "under utilized" by the Giants after not getting many targets in back-to-back games. She deleted the Instagram story soon after, but the internet doesn't forget — and neither does Joe Judge.

When asked if it's possible Tate will be listed as "inactive" for Sunday's game, Judge gave a broad, yet fair answer.

"I'm going to discuss a lot of possibilities today after practice," Judge said.

Judge has been known to be a no nonsense guy since taking the reigns as the Giants head coach, so something as selfish as complaining about targets is very unlikely to go over well with him.

If Tate remain active, we'll see if he's ready to be a team player again as the Giants look for their second win of the season.
