Rams' Hill will be inactive after early-morning arrest

LOS ANGELES (AP) Los Angeles Rams cornerback Troy Hill will be inactive for Sunday's game against Miami after his arrest early Saturday morning.

TMZ reports that Hill was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after a crash on a Los Angeles-area freeway.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department records indicate Hill was arrested at 8:15 a.m. and released from custody five hours later.

The team acknowledged an ''incident'' involving Hill in a brief statement, but called it an ''ongoing legal matter'' and provided no more details.

Hill has been a surprising contributor to the Los Angeles defense this season, ranking fourth on the team with 38 tackles. He started four games at cornerback in place of E.J. Gaines or Trumaine Johnson.
