Hill, who missed the first six games due to a drug suspension before returning as backup the following two weeks, has been given a vote of confidence from defensive coordinator Dean Pees.
"Yep, I'm planning on him being the safety," Pees said via the Baltimore Sun. "Our plan was to get him in there and get him playing. The only way he was going to get better was to play and play and play. So, we saw a lot of talent when he was suspended back when he could practice and felt like when we got him back we would just get hm up to speed."
Hill yielded a 54-yard touchdown reception to Steelers stud wideout Antonio Brown that motivated the corner to issue an apology via social media after the game.
Hill served a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. He is expected to play in a limited fashion against the Falcons.
"If we need it, Will will provide depth in the middle of the season," Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome explained.
Over two years and 24 games, Hill totaled 115 tackles, two interceptions, four passes defensed, three forced fumbles and a touchdown.
