After his hit last week, the thought of Stephen Hill being ready for this weekend's game seemed highly unlikely. But with eight days between the two games, it sounds as if Hill could be ready to play for the Jets tomorrow night, per Brian Costello of the NY Post.
The second-year receiver officially was listed as probable. He suffered a concussion last week against the Titans, but returned to practice Friday wearing a no-contact jersey and practiced fully Saturday with no restrictions.We hope that Hill isn't pushing himself back too soon. That happened with Eric Smith back in 2008 and it set him back further when he took another blow to the head. Still, if Hill is in fact back close enough to healthy, it would be a great addition to a banged up receiving corps that looks to be without Santonio Holmes already for this game. Hill, Kerley and Nelson could be a good grouping to work against an undermanned Falcons secondary, if Geno can do a better job getting them the ball.
