Patriots running back Jeremy Hill’s first season in New England will last just one game.
Hill reportedly suffered a torn ACL on Sunday and is out for the season according to Ian Rapoport.

The former Bengal signed with the Patriots this offseason. In the first half Sunday, Hill amassed 25 yards on 4 carries along with one catch for 6 yards before leaving with the injury. Hill looked very shifty by my first hand look and it’s a shame to lose a guy like him for the rest of the season.
The Patriots tried to revamp their running game this offseason by signing Hill and drafting running back Sony Michel in the 1st round. But Michel missed Week One with an injury, and now Hill is out for the remainder of the season.
Rex Burkhead was the Patriots’ leading rusher on Sunday with 18 carries for 64 yards. James White added five carries for 18 yards, and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson ran the ball three times for 13 yards.
