The Green Bay Packers had a roster spot to fill ever since they cut receiver and return man Jeremy Ross last Monday. They filled it with practice squad running back Michael Hill.
Hill played at Western Missouri, which isn’t exactly a college powerhouse. He was in camp with the San Diego Superchargers. But hey, watch these highlights. He can stiff arm the fuck out of pretty much any would-be tackler!
By adding Hill to the active roster, the Packers now have four running backs. Of course, three of those are in some state of injury. Eddie Lacy had a concussion in week two, James Starks hurt his knee last week and Johnathan Franklin hurt his ankle… or something.
Might have been a hamstring. I forget.
Oh, and John Kuhn was also out with a hamstring last week.
This doesn’t answer the question of who will be the Packers return man, but hey, here are some Mike Hill highlights anyway!
do we think Starks isn’t hurt very seriously? Who knows, but we sure as hell need more than one healthy RB. That dude has a serious stiff arm move.
Starks missed today due to his knee injury.. Franklin (foot) and more importantly Lacy and Burnett did practice today. Unfortunately, CM3 and Hayward still missed with their hamstrings..
Technically sound back who I believe gained the most yards in his division of college football–however, as I recall when they signed him, he avg like next to nothing in the preseason with the Chargers. New team, different results?
Rampageblanco, Morgan Burnett was a full participant in practice on Monday…
Yes, I’m aware. I said that him, Lacy and Franklin all did practice..
Sweet video! too bad our opponents don’t tackle like that!
If he can move like that in the NFL and avoid real tackles he’ll be just fine.
