RB - GB - IR
This Week Outlook
The Packers placed RB Kylin Hill (knee) on injured reserve.
As expected. Hill is out for the season after suffering the knee injury on Thursday against the Cardinals. The 23-year-old should be ready to return in 2022.
Green Bay Packers running back Kylin Hill suffered a torn ACL in Thursday's win over the Arizona Cardinals and is out for the season.
Hill suffered the torn ACL after colliding with Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Ward during a kick return in Thursday's win. The 23-year-old finishes the season with 23 rushing yards on 10 attempts and caught one pass for five yards over seven games in 2021. Hill mainly played special teams and was the team's third running back behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. The Packers will look to add another running back for special teams and depth purposes within the next few days.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein reports Kylin Hill has won the Packers' No. 3 RB job.
Green Bay released Dexter Williams and Patrick Taylor on Tuesday, which leaves Hill as the last man standing behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. Hill flashed in the preseason and should also work as a kick returner for the Packers this year.
The Green Bay Packers selected running back Kylin Hill with the No. 256 overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft.
Hill does not find himself in the most favorable situation in Green Bay behind Aaron Jones, who just signed an extension and AJ Dillon who the Packers invested a second-round pick on in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Packers did lose Jamaal Williams, so there is a small opening if Hill can show enough in training camp but there are no guarantees with players selected this late.
