Jeremy Hill ‘close’ to being cleared from ACL tear

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.
