Giants' Golden Tate in concussion protocol.

    Giants' receiver Golden Tate sustained a concussion Friday night in the Giants' 32-13 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears. It was not known Sunday how long the 10-year veteran will be kept out of practice.

 Tate had the appeal of his four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancers turned down last week.

The decision by an independent arbiter was announced Tuesday and means the 10-year-veteran will miss the first four games of the regular season, starting with Dallas on Sept. 8.

Tate, who signed a $37.5 million contract as a free agent with the Giants in March, announced the suspension in a Twitter post on July 27. He said he intended to appeal it and felt his case had merit because he was using a fertility drug prescribed by a doctor.

Tate was prescribed the drug by a physician, whom Tate now plans on suing. The doctor apparently told Tate that he prescribed clomiphene to four other NFL players who were not suspended.

Tate split last season with the Lions and Eagles, catching 74 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games. The Notre Dame product played with Seattle from 2010-13 and was with the Lions from 2014 until the trade to Philadelphia. His best seasons were from 2014-17, when he caught at least 90 passes per season with Detroit.

He signed a four-year, $37 million contract with the Giants in the offseason. Tate will lose more than a million in salary while suspended and his nearly $8 million signing bonus, due next year, is now voided due to the suspension.
