Giants safety Will Hill has now hit the daily double.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, Hill has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on substances of abuse.
In 2012, Hill was suspended four games for violating the performance enhancing substances policy, a suspension he (like many others) blamed on Adderall.
While a suspension under the PED policy comes automatically with one positive test, a suspension under the substance-abuse policy (which covers recreations substances like marijuana) contemplates multiple violations.
This suspension will cost him the first four regular season games. He’ll still be able to participate in training camp and preseason games.
With the departure of Kenny Phillips, the Giants were counting on Hill playing a larger role this season.
But now, they have to wonder if they can count on him at all.
