Another New York Giants defensive back has been suspended by the NFL.

The team revealed Wednesday that cornerback Jayron Hosley will be banned for the first four games of the regular season without pay for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Hosley's punishment comes less than a week after Giants safety Will Hill's six-game substance abuse-related suspension was announced. Hill was released on Monday after his third violation in two years.

Hosley, a 2012 third-round draft pick who played sparingly his first two seasons, remains eligible to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games. He can return for New York's Week 5 contest against the Atlanta Falcons.
