Hill had eight carries for 21 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 28 yards on his only target in Sunday's preseason game against the Jaguars.
Despite staying on for only three drives, the Cincinnati first-team offense had plenty of work for both Hill and Giovani Bernard, who had three carries for 27 yards and two receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown. The two running backs accounted for 14 of the 21 offensive touches while the starters were in the game, with Hill handling most early-down snaps and goal-line/short-yardage work. Hill got four carries inside the Jacksonville five-yard line on his last drive, finally converting the fourth one for a one-yard touchdown. Struggles at the goal line aside, Hill was impressive whenever he had room to run.
Hill (finger) had three carries for 16 yards and a touchdown, adding one reception for one yard, in Thursday's preseason game against the Lions.
Hill's finger injury from the last preseason game is a non-issue after he proved his health Thursday night. Per usual, he split first-team snaps with Giovani Bernard, who had two carries for two yards and one catch for six yards. The two running backs figure to reprise their roles from last season, and while the touchdown split (12:2 in Hill's favor) probably won't be so drastic, Hill could take a big step forward from last year's 3.6 YPC.
Hill received treatment for a left index finger injury early in Friday's preseason game against the Vikings.
Hill had three carries for 16 yards before leaving the game. He had just taken a carry to begin the Bengals' second offensive series when he suffered the injury. It's hard to tell now if there's anything significant there, given that he would have probably left the game in a few snaps anyhow.
Jeremy Hill gained 50 yards on 12 carries and scored a rushing touchdown, and secured three of four targets for 27 yards in Saturday's 18-16 Wild Card loss to the Steelers. He also lost a key fumble in the fourth quarter.
The third-year pro made one of several fateful mistakes by the Cincinnati Bengals in the last two minutes of the game that led to them snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Hill was stripped by Ryan Shazier at the Steelers 20-yard line with 1:36 remaining and the Bengals attempting to run out the clock after a Vontaze Burfict interception of Landry Jones had appeared to seal the win. The 23-year-old received some extra playing time after fellow back Giovanni Bernard was knocked out of the contest with a concussion, and ran well in his opportunities against a stalwart Steelers run defense. Hill did have a less productive season than originally expected, but he and Bernard will head into the offseason as a generally effective running back tandem that will look to take their play to the next level in 2016.
Hill failed to rush for 100 yards in a game during the regular season, though he did top 95 twice. He was very effective Sunday, rushing for a 38-yard touchdown in the third quarter that was his longest run of the year. Backup Giovani Bernard rushed six times for 36 yards and caught one pass for 12 receiving yards, as Hill continues to get a majority of the backfield touches, something that is likely to continue in the playoffs, especially if Andy Dalton is unable to recover from his broken thumb in time for the first-round matchup.
