Giants offensive lineman Eric Herman has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season, the NFL announced Friday.

Herman was suspended for using a banned stimulant. In a statement released by the team, Herman said he has a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for one medication, but not for another medication to treat the same condition. The second substance triggered a positive test which led to his suspension. 

Herman will miss New York's games against the Lions, Cardinals, Texans and Redskins. He is listed as the third-string center on the team's depth chart.

Herman was a seventh round pick in 2013. He did not see action in any games as a rookie.
