EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended for four games by the NFL for violating the league’s substance of abuse policy, his second drug suspension in two years.

Hill will miss the first four games of New York’s season, and be eligible to return in time for the Oct. 6 game against Philadelphia. He is still allowed to take part in training camp and preseason games.

He was suspended last year for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy, testing positive for Adderall.

Last season Hill apologized for his actions.

“I received a doctor’s prescription for Adderall prior to signing with the Giants,” Hill said. “Shortly after signing with the team, I was in a meeting with (director of player development) Charles Way, who reviewed the list of the league’s banned substances. I knew at that point that this may be an issue. I was tested and the results came back that Adderall was in my system. I appealed but lost the appeal. I accept full responsibility for this situation, and it won’t happen again.”
