New York Giants safety Will Hill has been banned by the NFL for the third time in two season, with the league giving him a six-game suspension for the upcoming 2014 season, according to reports

Hill trained Thursday in a capacity that already suggested he was about to be demoted as he worked out with the second team in preparation for the breaking news.

He will be able to join back up with the first team on October 13 when he's eligible to return to the team's active roster.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin admitted to the Newark Star Ledger that the situation is quite an awkward one right now.

"It is and it will be [a difficult situation]. There's no doubt about that part about it," coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday, via the Newark Star Ledger. "In the spring, we try to get as many reps for as many people as we can. Right now we're three-deep back [at safety], so it's fine."

After Hill served his suspension last season, he went on to play solidly for the Giants, making 77 tackles and picking off two interceptions in 12 games.

According to the Pro Football Focus rankings, that made Hill the second best safety in the league.
