The New England Patriots were hit with tough injury news following their 27-20 week one victory over the Houston Texans.

Running back Jeremy Hill, who had an impressive training camp and preseason, beating out Mike Gillislee for a roster spot, was placed on season ending injured reserve with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Before sustaining the injury in the third quarter, Hill played 12 offensive snaps and had 25 rushing yards off four carries, sharing time with Rex Burkhead and James White.

Hill also made an impact on special teams, partially blocking a Houston punt.

On Instagram Tuesday, Hill posted an Instagram message thanking supporters during his difficult time.

“Why me Why now is what I’ve been asking myself since Sunday but in actuality WHY NOT me. Adversity and hurdles have been my whole life this just seems to be another one in my journey. God doesn’t make mistakes and I know I’m being put through this for a reason. Thanks for all your prayers I truly appreciate them. Only the Beginning for me.”

With Hill lost for the season, the Patriots running back depth consists of Burkhead, White, Sony Michel and newly signed Kenjan Barner.
