The 49ers signed RB Brian Hill to the practice squad. It's only noteworthy because RBs Elijah Mitchell (knee, concussion) and Jeff Wilson (knee) are iffy for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. If they're out for that one, JaMycal Hasty figures to serve as lead back, with Hill potentially the #2.

Browns RBs Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton and John Kelly will miss this weekend's game vs. the Patriots on the COVID list, HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday. We'd expect Chubb back for Week 11 but will continue to keep tabs on his status. It'll be D'Ernest Johnson and Brian Hill, who was signed earlier this week, in Cleveland's backfield on Sunday. Johnson should handle the vast majority of the RB touches against New England's middling run defense. Johnson, of course, ran for 146 yards and a score on 22 carries vs. the Broncos back in Week 7.

The Titans placed RB Brian Hill on IR with an undisclosed injury. The timing of the move means that Hill is out for the season. That leaves Darrynton Evans as the clear #2 RB and handcuff to RB Derrick Henry.

The Titans signed former Falcons RB Brian Hill to a 1-year deal. Hill, a 2017 5th-round pick, averaged 4.7 YPC last year on a career-high 100 attempts. He’ll battle Darrynton Evans and Jeremy McNichols for the #2 spot behind Derrick Henry. A Henry injury would almost certainly result in a timeshare, though.

The Falcons have released RB Devonta Freeman, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The move saves Atlanta more than $3 million against the 2020 cap. Freeman just turned 28 but looked like a guy running on empty last season. He averaged a career-low 3.6 yards per carry and ranked dead last in Pro Football Focus' rushing grades among 45 RBs with 100+ attempts. We'll see what kind of interest Freeman garners on the open market. His departure leaves the Falcons with Ito Smith and Brian Hill atop the RB depth chart, making Atlanta 1 of the top destinations for a free-agent or rookie RB.

Falcons RB Ito Smith (neck) is out for Sunday's game against the Saints. Brian Hill will step in as Atlanta's #2 RB, but Smith's absence is an upgrade for Devonta Freeman. In 2 full games without Smith this season, Freeman has averaged 14.5 carries and 6 targets. Those marks drop to 12.2 carries and 5 targets with Smith.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that RB Ito Smith has been diagnosed with a concussion and won't play against the Seahawks this weekend. We'll see if he can get cleared after Atlanta's Week 9 bye. Brian Hill will step in as the #2 back on Sunday, but RB Devonta Freeman should dominate backfield work.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (groin) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but will play against the Bucs this weekend. Coleman could cede work to RB Brian Hill, making him a risky fantasy play.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (groin) was listed as "did not participate" in Thursday's practice. It's a surprise after HC Dan Quinn said earlier in the day that Coleman would put in a limited workout. It now looks like he won't be available for this weekend's game against the Bucs, leaving Brian Hill as Atlanta's lead back.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (groin) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the Bucs this weekend, which would knock RB Brian Hill out of consideration. We'll get another update on Coleman tomorrow.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (groin) was held out of Wednesday's practice. He didn't return to last weekend's game, and we're tentatively expecting him to miss Sunday's finale against the Bucs. That'd leave Brian Hill as Atlanta's lead back.

Falcons RB Ito Smith needs knee surgery and will be placed on IR, HC Dan Quinn said Monday. No word on Smith's exact injury or how long he'll be sidelined. His absence leaves Tevin Coleman and Brian Hill as the only RBs on Atlanta's roster -- although Quinn said he'd consider promoting Jeremy Langford from the practice squad. Either way, Coleman is looking at a hefty workload these final 2 weeks.

The Falcons used a 5th-round pick on Wyoming RB Brian Hill. A workhorse over the past 2 seasons, Hill racked up 3,491 rushing yards with 28 scores. It took him 630 carries to get there, though — a mediocre (for a college back) 5.5 yards per carry. Hill has good size at 6’1, 219 pounds and registered a 50th percentile SPARQ score. But we didn’t see anything to get excited about on tape. He’ll sit behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman this year. Freeman is currently set to hit free agency next offseason.
