Golden Tate loses appeal, will sit four games

Giants receiver Golden Tate’s appeal of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drugs policy was denied, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media reports. He can continue to practice and play in the preseason games but will not be allowed around his new team or its facilities for the first four weeks of the regular season, due to return Monday, Sept. 30.

Tate made his in-person plea to an arbitrator in New York City after last Tuesday’s practice. The decision took longer than the anticipated three-day window because an arbitrator can request a transcript of the hearing and reset the clock but coach Pat Shurmur was “anticipating” an outcome Tuesday morning.
