National Football League denies former Lions receiver Golden Tate's appeal of 4-game suspension

National Football League denies former Lions receiver Golden Tate's appeal of 4-game suspension”

New York Giants receiver Golden Tate lost his appeal over a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's Performance Enhancing Drug policy.

Now, the Giants will have to move forward without one of their biggest offseason acquisitions for the first four games of the season. He said he meant to appeal it and felt his case had merit because he was using a fertility drug prescribed by a doctor. His appeal was heard August 6 by an arbiter in NY.

He will be allowed to participate in all preseason practices and games.

News of Tate's suspension leaked last month, and Tate announced that he was appealing on the grounds that the positive test was due to a legitimate fertility treatment. He noted the treatment was for a fertility issue and it will have no effect on this season.

While some thought that Tate had the chance of getting his suspension reduced, the odds of him winning his appeal always seemed somewhat small.

"He is going to be in the right spot and he has a good feel for the zones, how to get open versus different techniques and stuff", Manning told reporters.

Without Tate, the Giants receiving corps looks even more barren, as a wave of injuries struck the team early in training camp, culminating with Corey Coleman tearing his ACL, and Sterling Shepard breaking his thumb.

Rookie Darius Slayton, the fifth-round draft choice, returned to practice this week after missing nearly all of training camp with a hamstring injury.

Before becoming a free agent, Tate was acquired at the 2018 trade deadline by the Philadelphia Eagles, setting up two more matchups against the Cowboys, but only caught three passes for 27 yards in the two games combined.
