The Minnesota Vikings have signed free agent running back Bronson Hill. He won the try out battle following the season-ending injury to Bishop Sankey.
The 24-year-old Hill will take the place of Sankey, who was lost to a season-ending torn ACL on Friday. He played in three games for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.
In those games, he had two carries for 11 yards. His longest carry was for seven-yards.
Hill was released by the Jaguars in May of this year.
Prior to making it with the Jaguars, he was on several teams rosters as a practice squad or off-season member only. He went undrafted following the 2015 NFL Draft after playing for Eastern Michigan.
Sankey began his career with the Tennessee Titans after being their second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He last played in the NFL with the Titans in 2015.
In his 29-game NFL career, he has 12 starts. He also has a 199 carries for 762 yards and three touchdowns.
He also had 32 receptions for 272 yards and a touchdown.
After being released by the Titans in Sept. 2016, he was signed by the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and the Minnesota Vikings, never appearing in a game.
In the first game of the preseason, he suffered the torn ACL and was then ruled out for the rest of the season.
