Minnesota Vikings cornerback Holton Hill has been suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, the league announced Friday.

Hill will be allowed to participate in all offseason activities as well as preseason practices and games.

He will be eligible to return to the Vikings on Sept. 28, one day after Minnesota’s Week 4 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

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.
