Giants linebacker, 25-year-old Justin Hilliard, has received a two-game suspension. Hilliard had reportedly violated the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, and has blamed his positive test on taking his partner’s medication.

“After investigation, it became clear that I mistakenly took my partner’s prescription medication instead of my own anti-inflammatory prescription. I am well aware of the NFL’s zero-tolerance policy, and I take full responsibility for having a banned substance in my body.”
