Suspended New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is in the concussion protocol.

Tate, who will miss the first four games of the regular season after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, was injured during Friday night’s 32-13 preseason win against Chicago. He was held out of practice Sunday.

Tate, 31, caught one pass for 5 yards against the Bears.

The Giants signed the former Pro Bowl selection to a four-year, $37.5 million deal in March.

Tate split last season with the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles, catching 74 passes for 795 yards and four touchdowns.

He has 611 receptions for 7,214 yards and 38 touchdowns in nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks (2010-13), Lions (2014-18) and Eagles.
