The New England Patriots received bad news today regarding one of their running backs.
Tests revealed Jeremy Hill tore his ACL during Sunday’s 27-20 win over the Houston Texans, according to a report from NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. He unfortunately will miss the remainder of the season.
Hill, who signed with the Patriots in March after four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. He carried the ball four times for 25 yards, caught one pass for 6 yards and partially blocked a punt against the Texans before exiting the game early in the third quarter.
Hill sustained his injury while trying to tackle Texans safety Tyrann Mathieu following a Rob Gronkowski fumble. Fullback James Develin’s shoulder made contact with the side of Hill’s right knee, resulting in the torn ligament.
