Jeremy Hill's season is unfortunately over.

According to multiple reports, Hill suffered a torn ACL in the Patriots 27-20 win over the Houston Texans yesterday. He was accidentally hit in the leg by James Develin, who was trying to make a tackle on Tyrann Mathieu after he picked up a fumble from Rob Gronkowski.

Hill went down immediately and was writhing in pain, and the Patriots were quick to rule him out for the rest of the game.

It's a disappointing end for Hill, who was very impressive in the preseason and added another weapon to one of the deepest backfields the Patriots have had under Bill Belichick.

The Patriots are now down to James White and Rex Burkhead as the main backs until Sony Michel returns. Placing Hill on IR will mean the team will eventually have to make a move, which means Ralph Webb could see some action.

Webb, like Hill, had some brilliant moments in the preseason and would be a decent depth option.
