Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 8 vs IND (4 / 11 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hill again received the start and took back-to-back carries for a combined 14 yards to open the Bengals' first possession. Later in the drive, he was stacked up for a 2-yard loss. He came off the field for Mixon once the Bengals got inside the 10-yard line. As per usual, Hill took the first few snaps of the Bengals first second-half drive as well and was dropped for a loss on his only second-half carry. Hill saw only seven total snaps and his role continues to be limited to playing a few snaps on the first drives of each half.
2017 Week 7 vs PIT (4 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Bengals continue to use Hill to start the game and to open the first drive after halftime. He got off to a decent start with five yards on his first carry but didn't do anything else positive the rest of the way. He was stopped for no gain on two other first down carries on the opening drive that forced the Bengals into tough 2nd-and-10 situations.
2017 Week 5 vs BUF (4 / 16 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hill continues to start every game but played just 11 of 66 snaps. He touched the ball four times and was solid. He gets what is blocked and is able to finish runs with some power.
2017 Week 4 vs CLE (6 / 16 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Hill continues to be the starting running back on paper and still takes the first snap of the game and usually the first snap of the second half as well. He carried for a modest 3-yard gain on the Bengals first offensive play. On his next carry, Hill had the ball knocked out of his hands and the Bengals were lucky to recover when an offensive lineman jumped on it.
2017 Week 3 vs GB (7 / 23 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Hill got the start and looked sluggish on his few carries the opening drive. He was able to step out of an ankle tackle to gain six yards on a short dump off. He came back in and took four straight carries near the end of a long drive early in the second quarter. He was able to pick up 16 yards and get the ball inside the 10-yard line to setup a Giovani Bernard touchdown. Hill touched the ball just one time after time, with Mixon dominating the touches down the stretch.
2017 Week 2 vs HOU (6 / 17 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Hill received another start, played 15 snaps and was fine. He showed decent power and generally got what was blocked for him. Unfortunately, that wasn't much. Without big holes to run through, Hill averaged less than three yards per carry. On seven touches, he didn't make a guy miss.
2017 Week 1 vs BAL (6 / 26 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)
The Bengals rotated backs with each getting a series mostly to themselves early. Hill was the first back in the rotation and had the first drive to himself (except for one third down). His best run of the day came on his first touch, cutting through a big hole up the middle and running straight ahead for a gain of 12. Hill started the first drive of the second half as well, but had no room to run. At some point he tweaked his ankle and sat out the final 20 minutes after playing just 10 snaps. With the Bengals trailing, he likely wouldn't have been part of the game plan down the stretch anyway. He indicated after the game that his ankle was fine.
