Report: Patriots RB Hill (ACL) out for season


New England Patriots running back Jeremy Hill's first season with the team is over after one game.

Hill left Sunday's game with a knee injury and multiple reports indicate he suffered a torn ACL in his right knee while in pursuit on a change of possession against the Houston Texans.

Patriots fullback James Develin delivered an inadvertent shot to Hill's knee as both pursued the ball after a turnover.

"That's incredibly unfortunate, but we've just got to keep pressing on and just try to work as hard as we can and play hard in his honor," Develin said Sunday.

New England's depth at running back would be suspect entering Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars unless rookie Sony Michel can return. Michel was inactive Sunday with a knee issue.

Hill, 25, joined the Patriots in free agency after spending four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. Cincinnati selected Hill 55th overall in the 2014 draft.
