Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate was officially handed his four-game suspension as the National Football League announced it had denied his appeal.

Tate tested positive when a fertility drug he was prescribed in April contained a banned substance, a month after the Giants signed him to a four-year, $37.5 million contract. His appeal was heard Tuesday by an arbiter in NY.

The Giants face the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins in their first four games.

Tate can continue to play in preseason games and practice with the team until the regular season begins.

Tate released a new statement following his appeal getting denied. I went into this arbitration with the understanding that due to the facts, unlike many other cases, we could be the exception to win. However, players must submit an application filled out by their physician to receive approval for a TUE. "No one is more upset than myself, but moving forward, all I can do is continue to be a leader, continue to hold myself to the highest character and integrity, and soon make the biggest impact on the field".
