FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Stephen Hill's season may be over before it ever really got started.
Latest Jets stories
Rex Ryan Wednesday would not rule out Hill missing the final three games with a knee injury that kept him out of practice. He also said the knee could be the reason why the second-year receiver has only 24 catches for 342 yards and one touchdown.
The Jets traded up in the 2012 draft to get Hill with the 43rd pick. It hasn't worked out. But Ryan said he hasn't given up on Hill.
"Really, by Year 3, I think that's the big one," Ryan said. "You'll know if this guy has really hit it [or if] this guy maybe hasn't been as good. Certainly by the numbers, I understand you expect a certain amount of production, but there's some contributing factors here. I know one thing: He had a great training camp and we were all excited. I was excited about seeing him make those steps."
