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.
