The National Football League released a statement yesterday declaring Rams corner back Troy Hill will be suspended, without pay, for the first two games of the season. He will be eligible to return to the team’s active roster Monday, September 18, following the May 17 game against the Washington Redskins at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
On November 19 Hill was arrested for Driving Under the Influence after rear-ending a big rig on and L.A. area freeway. The team immediately waived him, but Hill returned to the team and was put on the practice squad.
The league said Hill will be able to “… participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.”
Hill had 40 tackles in 12 games last season, which was his second in the NFL.

We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
