Hill had two carries for eight yards and a two-yard reception on his only target in Sunday's loss to the Bears.
The carries were the first of the rookie's NFL career. In fact, Hill received his first seven offensive snaps of his career in the game. With both Joe Mixon (concussion) and Giovani Bernard (knee) banged up in practice Wednesday, Hill might garner a closer look by the Bengals in Week 15 against the Vikings.
Hill spent one game with the Falcons active roster earlier this season before being demoted to the practice squad. He'll now head to Cincinnati after Jeremy Hill (ankle) was placed on injured reserve this past weekend. Hill, Brian that is, should play a reserve role on the Bengals offense behind Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard, at least until he gets a better understanding of his new team's playbook.
Hill was signed to the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday.
Hill was waived by the Falcons on Saturday but now rejoins the team as a member of the practice squad. The rookie was only active for one game during his stint on the active roster.
Hill was waived by the Falcons on Saturday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Hill, the fourth running back on the depth chart, was let go in order for the team to increase its receiving depth. The rookie will presumably clear waivers and revert to the Falcons' practice squad.
Hill (ankle) logged his first full practice of the regular season Wednesday.
Hill has missed the first two weeks of the season due to an ankle injury, but appears on track to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Lions barring any setbacks. The rookie does not figure to hold any fantasy relevance early on given the running backs ahead of him, but he should see plenty of work in special teams.
