Golden Tate will have to serve his four-game suspension for a positive test of performance-enhancing drugs.
He announced the suspension in a Twitter post on July 27, and said he meant to appeal it and felt his case had merit because he was using a fertility drug prescribed by a doctor.
Now the Giants will be without Tate for the first four games of the season, and the veteran will not be paid for those games.
"This past April, during the offseason, my wife and I chose to see a specialist for fertility planning", the statement began.
While some thought that Tate had the chance of getting his suspension reduced, the odds of him winning his appeal always seemed somewhat small. "I started the treatment prescribed to me and just days later I discovered it contained an ingredient that is on the league's banned substance list". The 30-year-old receiver said he "immediately discontinued use" and reported the situation before the failed test was confirmed.
"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. This offseason, the Giants signed Tate to a four-year $37.5 million contract.
Tate's absence will be a big loss for the Giants, who are already struggling with depth at the receiver position without Odell Beckham Jr.
Tate, who is entering his 10th National Football League season, has previously played for the Seahawks, Lions and Eagles.
Sterling Shepard broke his left thumb in the opening practice. In the middle of the 2018 season, he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles.
