The New England Patriots also tried out free-agent running backs Orleans Darkwa, Charles Sims and wide receiver Brandon Tate on Tuesday. Tate was the team's third-round pick in 2009. New England already signed wideouts Corey Coleman and Bennie Fowler and running back Kenjon Barner on Tuesday, so it's unclear if they will add any more bodies for depth with running back Jeremy Hill (knee) now done for the year and receiver Julian Edelman suspended for three more games.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Sept. 10, according to a source. WRs Chad Hansen and Riley McCarron were waived.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill (knee) was diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.
Fantasy Spin: While the news is devastating for Hill, he was set to play a bit role behind Rex Burkhead and James White. If anything, Hill's injury should lock the other two into more work inside the red zone.
New England Patriots running back Jeremy Hill (knee) tore his ACL in Week 1 against the Texans and will miss the rest of the season, according to a source. Hill was expected to fill the short-yardage/goal-line role for the team this season, but that obviously won't happen now. Hill wasn't much of a fantasy option with few touches expected per week. Rookie Sony Michel (knee), who was inactive in the season opener, should eventually serve as the No. 3 back behind Rex Burkhead and James White.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill rushed four times for 25 yards in the Week 1 game against the Houston Texans and he added one catch for six yards.
Fantasy Spin: Hill averaged 6.3 yards per carry in his team debut, so it was a pretty successful outing as he spelled Rex Burkhead. Still, he had five total touches to 19 for Burkhead, so he has work to do if he wants to carve into Burkhead's role and build fantasy appeal. Right now, he is only worth using in the deepest of fantasy formats.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 1 game and will not return.
New England Patriots running back Jeremy Hill exited Sunday's game against the Texans after injuring his knee in the third quarter. Hill went to the medical tent and then walked to the locker room soon after. With fellow running back Sony Michel already out the Patriots are down to just Rex Burkhead and James White in the backfield. While Burkhead is the starter, White is more of a threat in the passing game, already catching a touchdown earlier today.
New England Patriots running back Jeremy Hill is excited to have made the final Patriots roster heading into the season. He told Zack Cox of NESN, "We're all blessed, and we're all privileged to be here. So we're definitely excited, the guys who did make the cut." Now that the former 1,000-yard rusher has made the team, he may have a larger role to begin the season than first envisioned. Rookie running back Sony Michel is still working his way back from injury and Rex Burkhead is nursing a knee injury. This opens the door for players like Hill and James White to see some snaps heading into Week 1. Hill is not fantasy viable at this time but could get some early run in the Patriots offense.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill has won a roster spot, beating out RB Mike Gillislee.
Fantasy Spin: Hill is still behind Rex Burkhead, James White and perhaps even Brandon Bolden in the pecking order in Foxboro, so he has an uphill climb to fantasy relevance again. Still, Burkhead has had propensity for injury, so Hill could re-emerge sooner rather than later.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill has the edge over RB Mike Gillislee for the 'big back' role, according to Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill (ankle) exited the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Friday, Aug. 24, but was seen jogging and jumping on the sidelines shortly after.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill served as the top running back during practice Sunday, Aug. 12, with RBs Rex Burkhead (undisclosed) and Sony Michel (knee) sidelined.
New England Patriots running back Jeremy Hill, who is fighting for a roster spot with Mike Gillislee in training camp and the preseason, helped his cause with a solid performance in the preseason opener on Thursday. He carried the ball 11 times for 51 yards and a touchdown. Hill hadn't gained more than 50 yards on the ground in any game since Week 14 of the 2016 season. He's also dropped 10 pounds and says he feels "lighter on (his) feet." On the flip side, Gillislee had 43 yards on 14 carries (3.1 yards per carry) and also botched a handoff. Hill appears to be leading the competition over Gillislee for the final spot. Still, even if Hill wins a roster spot, he'll be behind Rex Burkhead, James White and rookie Sony Michel in a short-yardage role, which wouldn't yield much fantasy value.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill carried 11 times for 51 yards and a touchdown on Thursday, Aug. 9, against the Washington Redskins. Hill added two receptions for 14 yards.
New England Patriots running back Jeremy Hill has a better chance of securing the final running back spot on the roster over Mike Gillislee, in the opinion of NESN's Doug Kyed. Gillislee has had a tough time staying healthy. Rookie Sony Michel, James White and Rex Burkhead are locks, and Brandon Bolden will likely make the roster because of his special teams prowess and overall versatility. If Hill makes the team, he won't have much of a role. However, he could be the goal-line back for a team that should continue to score often, so he could be useful as a flex back in standard-scoring formats.
New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill is more likely to make the team as the final running back over RB Mike Gillislee (undisclosed) due to durability concerns, according to NESN's Doug Kyed.
New England Patriots RBs Mike Gillislee, Jeremy Hill and Ralph Webb may compete for one roster spot during training camp.
