New York Giants safety Will Hill recently admitted that his four-game suspension imposed by the NFL is for him using marijuana during the 2012 season.

The 23-year-old Hill, a graduate of the University of Florida, said that he has not used any banned substances this year.

He has undergone drug rehabilitation in March and April with follow-up outpatient meetings.

Hill was also suspended for four games last season for using a performance-enhancing drug that he and the team said was Adderall. The league didn’t impose the penalty then because Hill tried to appeal it.
