Detroit Lions RB Wes Hills scored his first career NFL touchdown during the third quarter of Sunday’s contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He had just been signed yesterday from the team’s practice squad.

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.
