Minnesota Vikings cornerback Holton Hill has been suspended without pay for an additional four games for violating the NFL’s policy and program on substance abuse, the league announced Tuesday.

The league in April suspended Hill for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Hill will be allowed to participate in all preseason practices and games. He can return to the active roster Oct. 25 — the day following the Vikings’ eighth game — and is eligible to play in a Nov. 3 game at the Kansas City Chiefs.

Hill, 22, had 36 tackles and one interception in 16 games (three starts) last season as an undrafted rookie.

He reportedly failed a drug test at the 2018 NFL Combine and also reportedly failed at least one drug test as a college player at Texas.
