The Los Angeles Rams will be without potential starting cornerback Troy Hill for the first two games of the 2017 season. The NFL announced on Monday that the two-year pro has been suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Hill, 25, started four games for the team last season. In the process, he recorded 38 tackles and two passes defended.

Some expected Hill to play a larger role in first-year defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ system. While that might very well still be true, this suspension does the former Oregon standout no real favors moving forward into the off-season program.

If we know one thing about the veteran Phillips, it’s that he doesn’t put up with games an immaturity off the field.
