Giants CB Jayron Hosley suspended 4 games for substance-abuse violation
Giants corner Jayron Hosely will have to sit out the first four games of the 2014 NFL season after violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Hosley is the second Giants player in less than a week to be hit with a suspension. Safety Will Hill was suspended for six games in late May. However, Hill won't be serving that suspension with the Giants because the team released him on Monday.
As for Hosley, he's eligible to play in all preseason games and he's also allowed to practice with the team from now until the preseason's over. The 23-year-old's suspension will begin just before Week 1 in September and Hosley will be eligible to return to the Giants' active roster on Sept. 26, following the team's Week 4 game against Washington.
Hosley has seen action in a total of 23 games with the Giants since being taken in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. The backup corner also served time as a punt returner for the Giants in 2013.
