Last training camp, Jeremy Hill won the contest to be the New England Patriots’ power back with an impressive preseason and camp. The stint, sadly, lasted just 1 game before the running back blew out his ACL.
This summer, the 26-year-old is still hoping to have cleared and find a home. Hill sounds optimistic that clearance will come soon.

“I think for me personally coming off a significant ACL injury, I am just doing what I could to get back to 100 per cent,” Hill said, via Herbie Teope of The Advocate. “I know there is likely to be a job awaiting me when I get rid, so that is all I am doing now.
“I’m just trying to become healthy and after that happens, I’ll be back. I’m fairly close. I am about eight months from surgery, so hopefully soon.”
As he rehabs his knee injury, hill remains a free agent.
The running back conquer Mike Gillislee for a backup function in New England last year during training camp. Before tearing his ACL, his four bags looked promising, garnering 25 yards (6.3 YPA). In addition, he played in that 1 game on special teams for the Pats.
If he could show he is healthy, Hill could get a chance to fight for a roster spot during somebody’s training camp. Considering that the status of backup running backs, that opportunity is not a given, and the veteran may have to wait until accidents begin to pile up.
His operation last August and early September suggested Hill has a location in the league. Getting healthy is the first step in getting another opportunity to prove that he still belongs.
