New York Giants safety Will Hill has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to a report on the team’s website.

“I received a doctor’s prescription for Adderall prior to signing with the Giants. 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,” Hill said.

“I was tested and the results came back that Adderall was in my system. I appealed but lost the appeal. I will work hard and stay in great shape these next four weeks so I can come back and contribute to this team after my suspension.”

Fortunately for the Giants another safety—Tyler Sash—will be back with the team this week after serving his own four-game suspension for violating the same policy.
