New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate has had the appeal of his four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancers turned down.

"This morning I received the unfortunate news that my appeal was denied".

Tate previously indicated that the positive test came from a prescribed fertility medication.

"This past April, during the off-season, my wife and I made a decision to see a specialist for fertility planning", a statement from Tate read.

According to Tate via Twitter, he claims to have taken a drug on the NFL's list of banned substances when he and his wife were working through fertility treatment.

Quarterback Eli Manning praised Tate on Tuesday prior the announcement of his appeal being denied. The 30-year-old receiver said he "immediately discontinued use" and reported the situation before the failed test was confirmed. I greatly appreciate the support from the Giants since long before an outcome was even determined.

Tate enters the season with the Giants after the Lions dealt him to Philadelphia for a third-round pick during the season previous year.

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.

The Giants signed Tate, 31, to a four-year, $37.5 million contract during the offseason.

Over nine National Football League seasons, Tate has 611 receptions for 7,214 yards and 38 touchdowns. The 26-year-old has 46 catches for 635 yards and four touchdowns in 51 games over five National Football League campaigns.
