For those of you unfamiliar with Hills, here’s a little background via The Detroit Free Press:

An undrafted rookie, Hills spent his college years between Delaware and Slippery Rock. After a pair of injury-shortened seasons in 2015-16, and being ruled academically ineligible the 2017 campaign, he landed at Division II Slippery Rock. There he rushed for 1,714 yards and 17 touchdowns in 12 games, earning All-American honors.

He initially signed with the Arizona Cardinals and spent the offseason with the team, rushing for 63 yards and a touchdown with 13 carries during the preseason.

After being cut by the Cardinals, the 6-foot-2, 218-pound Hills found his way to Detroit’s practice squad in October. He was passed up for a promotion in favor of Scarbrough last month, but will now Hills gets an opportunity to show what he can do.
