Report: Giants safety Will Hill will play Sunday despite Friday arrest

Will Hill was arrested Friday night in New Jersey on a warrant related to child support, a source familiar with the situation told Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

But Hill, 23, traveled with the Giants to Detroit and is expected to play against the Lions on Sunday, according to a team spokesperson, who said the team will not punish Hill because it considers the issue "a private, personal matter that he is dealing with."

Hill served a four-game suspension at the beginning of the season for failing a drug test, and he admitted it was because of marijuana use. It was the second time he's been suspended — the first being in Oct. 2012 when he said he tested positive for Adderall.

The second-year man was one of the most heralded high school football players in New Jersey history, but a litany of issues at the University of Florida caused him to go undrafted in 2011.

Hill, who has fathered four children with three different women, said last summer he turned to drugs in part because of the "stress from [his] environment," and "everyone reaching their hand out thinking I'm an ATM."

Hill has played 10 games this season (eight starts) and has one interception, two forced fumbles and a pass deflection.
