Jeremy Hill to Start for Bengals, Says Gio Bernard


In a move toward making one running back the workhorse, the Cincinnati Bengals will start Jeremy Hill on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Giovani Bernard told reporters that the rookie would start, per the team’s official website. Bernard added he is willing to play any role to help the team win.

After spending the past three weeks splitting carries between his two young running backs, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said on Wednesday he wanted to make one his workhorse.

“I’m used to having one guy kind of dominate some carries because in order for backs to be really good, they’ve got to get lathered up to play,” Jackson said, per the team’s official website.
