Rex: Stephen could be a Hill of a receiver
After a week in which he missed two days of practice because of an illness, WR Stephen Hill didn’t catch a pass on Sunday. He dropped one and lost another in the lights. Drops have been a problem for the rookie this season, but coach Rex Ryan said he hasn’t lost confidence in Hill.
"With Stephen, I will say this, I was impressed with the way the young man blocked,” Ryan said. “For us that's a big thing. Has he lost some confidence? He dropped the ball or whatever. One thing I know for sure is we're going to keep throwing it to him. I think this young man is going to realize -- by the way, you can play this game. You can get separation from people."
