Pressley will face a two-game suspension once he signs with an NFL team, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The reason for Pressley's suspension remains undisclosed, but it appears the off-field issue is fully settled. The 26-year-old led the AAF in rushing with 431 yards on 96 attempts (4.5 YPC) and one touchdown through eight games, and he has two workouts with NFL teams scheduled next week.
Pressley is the AAF rushing leader through six weeks, with 75 carries for 343 yards (4.6 average) and one touchdown for the Arizona Hotshots.
Pressley also has nine catches for 72 yards and two scores, making a decent case to get another look in the NFL once the AAF season is over. He went undrafted out of New Mexico in 2016 and subsequently bounced around from Minnesota to Green Bay to Atlanta to New York. The 26-year-old has never made an appearance in an NFL regular-season game, though he did land on the Packers' 53-man roster for Week 1 of 2016.
Pressley was released by the Giants on Saturday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic New York reports.
Pressley joined the Giants late in the preseason with the team in need of another body in the backfield for their final preseason games. While Pressley won't be on the final roster this year, he is now a candidate to make New York's practice squad.
The Giants were in need of another body at running back while Saquon Barkley (hamstring) and Jalen Simmons (concussion) nurse their injuries. Pressley has yet to appear in a regular season game since entering the NFL in 2016, so he'll be a longshot to make the 53-man roster in New York.
