Hill stayed down on the turf after he tried to tackle Jakobi Meyers late in the fourth quarter. He appeared to move his hands and fingers as he was taken off the field on a stretcher, which was a good sign.
The Browns announced after the game that Hill had movement in all of his extremities. It’s likely that doctors just used an abundance of caution given the nature of the injury. We’re glad to hear he is doing well.
