Kylin Hill will miss the rest of his Green Bay Packers season after being carted off the field on Thursday night. Hill collided with Jonathan Ward of the Arizona Cardinals and took a helmet to the knee.

Ward was screened under the league’s concussion protocol. He was able to move all his extremities after the terrible hit. There’s no word on how long he’ll be out. NBC Sports reported on the severity of the injury.

The Packers were able to hold off the Cardinals prolific offense and win the game 24-21. Both teams carry exceptional 7-1 records. Now, the Packers will be without a key special teams player who also gets plenty of reps on offense.

Aaron Rodgers led the Pack with 184 passing yards and two touchdowns. The victory ended any thought of the Cardinals completing a rare undefeated season. Cards QB Kyler Murray went 22/33 with 274 passing yards and two interceptions.

The Packers will face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs without Hill on November 7. Arizona will try to pick up the piece after their first loss against the San Francisco 49ers on the same day. The two clubs may be on a collision course to meet again in the playoffs.

Kylin Hill was a 7th round pick by Green Bay in this year’s NFL draft. He’s averaging almost 20 yards per on 10 kick returns. He’s averaging 2.4 yard per carry and has one reception in his rookie year.
