Gates (foot) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.
Gates has a chance to return after Week 8, but the odds of that happening seem slim to none at the moment. The Giants are likely to allocate their midseason injured reserve promotion on a more impactful player. In all likelihood, Gates will have to compete for a roster spot in 2019.
