Bengals.com writer Geoff Hobson: OC Hue Jackson said he didn’t play Jeremy Hill a lot Sunday because he didn’t want to throw a rookie in there in a hostile environment on the road against a good defense. The No. 1 thing you have to do to beat Baltimore at home is not turn it over and stay away from mistakes and so it was a veteran’s game. But don’t worry. Hue knows Hill is around. My guess is he’ll end up with more carries than the rookie Giovani Bernard got with 170 last year. And he’ll get more when the Ravens are at Paul Brown Stadium Oct. 26.
Hill was reportedly told after the game that he would get more work going forward, so we're still looking for a Bernard/Hill combination backfield with Bernard getting most of the touches. Owners weak at running back should not part ways with Hill just yet.
