Hill rushed 222 times for 839 yards and nine touchdowns, while catching 21 passes (on 27 targets) for 174 yards in 15 games played this season. Hill, a second-round pick in 2014, has scored at least nine touchdowns in each of his three professional seasons. Although that's made him an impactful fantasy commodity, Hill has been wildly inefficient since his rookie campaign. Compared to his 5.1 yards per carry that year, Hill has averaged just 3.7 yards since, and topped 4.0 yards per rush in only three games this season. He also had nine games of under 50 rushing yards, despite teammate Giovani Bernard (knee) landing on injured reserve in November. As a result of Bernard rehabbing from that ailment and the inconsistent Hill entering the final year of his rookie contract, the Bengals could address their running back options in some fashion this offseason, Cincinnati.com reports. That could give the 24-year-old Hill more incentive to prove his worth, but could also factor into his workload if he continues to frustrate with his performances.
Hill (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens. Hill suited up in Week 16, but was clearly hobbled by a knee injury, and ended up logging just 13 offensive snaps. The Bengals won't risk any further injury in a relatively meaningless regular season finale, leaving backfield duties to Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman.
Hill (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Ravens after practicing in a limited fashion Friday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports. Hobson previously expressed some doubt with regard to Hill's Week 17 status and supporting the notion that the running back could be held out or limited Sunday, is that the Bengals have promoted rookie RB Tra Carson from their practice squad.
Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com suggests that Hill (knee) looks pretty iffy for Sunday's season finale against the Ravens after missing practice again Thursday. If Hill is unable to play Sunday, look for Rex Burkhead to lead the Bengals' Week 17 rushing attack, with Cedric Peerman and perhaps current practice-squadder Tra Carson also in the team's depth RB mix.
Hill (knee) didn't practice Thursday, ESPN's Katherine Terrell reports. More on Hill's status no later than Friday, but if the running back is out or limited at all this weekend, then Rex Burkhead would be in line for added opportunities Sunday against the Ravens.
