A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that New York Giants safety Will Hill is facing a possible third suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The person, who requested anonymity because the allegations have not been publicly disclosed, confirmed Monday that Hill failed another drug test. Teams and the league do not discuss such allegations because players have a right to privacy under the league's drug policy.
Fox Sports and the Star-Ledger of Newark were the first to report that the talented but troubled 24-year-old Hill failed another drug test. Hill could face a suspension of six games to a year depending on what the tests showed. Hill was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season for using a performance-enhancing drug, which he said was Adderall. He was suspended for the first four games last season for using marijuana, which he said was to relieve stress.
