The NFL has suspended New York Giants tight end Isaiah Searight four games for violating the league’s substance policy.

Right as New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate returns from a four-game suspension for PEDs, a young Big Blue tight end begins his.

On Tuesday, it was announced that the NFL would be suspending Giants tight end Isaiah Searight four games for violating the league’s substance policy. Searight has yet to play a game for Big Blue and is on their injured reserve list. He suffered a hamstring injury in training camp this past Summer and was waived. No other team had claimed him thereafter.

Searight is a first-year player out of Fordham. Through 44 games in college from 2015-18, Searight caught 89 balls for 1,119 yards and 10 touchdowns. His best year was his senior season in 2018, where he caught a career-high 42 balls for a career-high 479 yards. His four scores that year tied a career-high that he previously had set in his junior season.

Searight competed alongside guys such as Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison, Scott Simonson, and Garrett Dickerson. He wasn’t the only New York tight end to go down during training camp. Simonson was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury at the end of August. The Giants thus released him with an injury settlement last month.

The Giants head into their Week 5 game with a 2-2 record. They’ve won their last two games after starting off the year 0-2. Big Blue play host to the Minnesota Vikings this coming Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET.
