Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension from the Deflategate scandal has been reinstated by a U.S. appeals court ruling Monday.

FOX's Jared Max has more:

The on-again-off-again suspension of the New England Patriots quarterback is "on" again.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled today in New York Tom Brady must sit out the first four games of the next NFL season. By a vote of 2 to 1, it was determined that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell exercised discretion under the league's collective bargaining agreement when last May, he punished Brady and the Patriots for using under-inflated footballs in the 2015 AFC championship game.

But, last September 3, U.S. district judge Richard Berman overturned the suspension. Now, Brady will have to sit out the first four games of next season, no word of if he will appeal.
