    Marvin Lewis: Jeremy Hill could have waited until after the season to have surgery
    Posted by Michael David Smith on November 14, 2017, 8:06 AM EST


    Bengals running back Jeremy Hill is having season-ending ankle surgery for an injury that coach Marvin Lewis says didn’t have to end Hill’s season.

    Lewis said on Monday that two doctors agreed that Hill could have played the rest of the season on his ankle and had surgery after the season, but Hill chose to do it now.

    “Jeremy thinks he needs to have ankle surgery,” Lewis said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Yeah, I think I would be [surprised]. I think he’s consulted a couple physicians, both said that this was something that could wait until after the season but he just felt like it was causing too much discomfort.”

    Hill hadn’t been on the Bengals’ official injury report and Lewis said he didn’t need to be, because he wasn’t experiencing any issues that would indicate he couldn’t play.

    “I don’t think he had any instance of [a problem] since this August when he rolled his ankle in training camp, or whatever it was, training camp or warmups in a game — I can’t remember what it was,” Lewis said. “One of those times in the preseason. But that’s the only instance he’s had this fall.”

    Those comments suggest Lewis and Hill aren’t on the same page, and that’s not surprising: Lewis is coaching a 3-6 team and wants all hands on deck in an attempt to turn things around. But Hill has to think about his future, specifically the fact that he’s in the last year of his contract, and the Bengals are unlikely to bring him back after drafting running back Joe Mixon this year. For Hill, the right move is to put his injury behind him as quickly as possible and be able to show teams he’s healthy when he hits free agency. Even if Lewis wanted Hill to tough it out for seven more weeks.

    Hill over Hyde still the right move? Hill with the better stats, but Hyde never a season under 4 yards a pop. Obviously Jeremy over Bell looks hideous, but I doubt anyone would have guessed that on draft day.

    Why would he be surprised? Hill was getting token carries and even those were getting reduced. I’m not risking my health and future for that either.

    Yes, I'm not surprised at all. I do think that Marvin was a big defender of his, but even then, handwriting was on the wall once Mixon was picked.

    Time for a new start for him... only way he'd re-sign here was if he didn't have any suitors elsewhere in FA, and I suspect he'll have some. If he can recapture some of the rookie form, and not dance around like he's a scatback, he can be a useful, and likely relatively inexpensive, pickup.

    You never want to be recovering from surgery as a FA. This gives him time to recover and work out for teams. Marvin is ignorant if he is really surprised.

    I still think about this one every year. Rarely is the guy I really want still there when we pick, and Hyde was available. I'm long over it, but I still remember it.

    Signed Brian Hill and gave him Jeremy's number... PEACE.

    Really like the signing of Hill. Would have loved the signing of Elijah Hood off the Raiders practice squad.
