The NFL suspended Giants S Will Hill for four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Hill, a first-year player, had three tackles, including one for a loss, and he forced a fumble on special teams.

The Giants activated S Tyler Sash to the 53-man roster. Sash served a four-game suspension for using Adderall, and Hill was suspended for using the medication as well.

“I received a doctor’s prescription for Adderall prior to signing with the Giants,” Hill said in a statement on the team’s web site. “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. The Giants have given me a great opportunity when nobody else would, and I don’t take that for granted. I feel badly this has happened. 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.”

Sash played in every game last year mainly as a special-teams contributor. He had 14 special-teams tackles as a rookie.
