New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate has lost his appeal of his four-game suspension. Tate tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance that he said came from a prescribed fertility medication. His appeal was heard Tuesday by an arbiter in New York.
The suspension will cost Tate $465,000 in salary ($116,176 per game). He will miss the opener on the road against the Dallas Cowboys followed by games against the Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins. However, he will be allowed to participate in all preseason practices and games.
