He's eligible to return Oct. 6 against the Vikings.
Analysis: 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 split last season with the Lions and Eagles, catching 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games.
