Jayron Hosley suspended for substance abuse violation

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Hosley will miss first four games.

New York Giants cornerback Jayron Hosley has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the 2014 season. Hosley violated the league's substance abuse policy.

The third-year cornerback will be eligible to return to the Giants' active roster on Friday, Sept. 26 following the team's Sept. 25 game against the Washington Redskins.

Hosley is eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.

The news comes just two days after the Giants waived safety Will Hill following his third league-imposed suspension.

Hosley, as Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News pointed out, failed a drug test at the 2012 NFL Combine.

The Giants drafted Hosley in the third round in 2012 hoping he would become their slot cornerback. The 23-year-old has played 23 games, starting seven.

The Giants signed free-agent cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond and Zack Bowman this offseason, along with bringing back Trumaine McBride.
