Former Oregon Ducks football defensive back Troy Hill (2010-2014), who now plays for the Los Angeles Rams, has been suspended the first two games of the NFL regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, as reported by NFL Insider for ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Since graduating from the University of Oregon, Hill was signed as an undrafted free agent to the Cincinnati Bengals in 2015.
