New York Giants linebacker Justin Hilliard was suspended for the first two games of the 2022 season, NFL Network reported Friday, after he violated the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Hilliard, who went undrafted out of Ohio State, made his NFL debut last season and played in two games with the Giants. He played on 15 special-teams snaps.
Hilliard, 25, was waived by the San Francisco Giants on Aug. 31 of last year and signed by the Giants a day later. He was placed on injured reserve in mid-October due to an ankle injury.
He will be eligible to join the Giants on Sept. 19, one day following their Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers.
