Backup wide receiver Brandon Collins has been suspended for the first four games of the season.

Collins violated the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. His suspension, without pay, effectively ends on Sept. 30 after the Giants play the Kansas City Chiefs.

The 5-11 Collins, who is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games, saw an increase in snaps in OTAs with Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks not participating in the voluntary OTAs.

The Giants currently have Nicks, Cruz, Rueben Randle, Louis Murphy, Jerrel Jernigan, Ramses Barden, Jeremy Horne, Collins, Kris Adams, Kevin Hardy and Keith Carlos.
