Hill suffered the injury attempting to make a tackle on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Patriots backup quarterback Brian Hoyer to wide receiver Jakobi Meyers, which gave New England a 45-7 lead. After the play, Hill could be seen laying motionless on the field surrounded by concerned players on both teams before being loaded onto a stretcher to leave the field.

According to CBS sideline reporter Evan Washburn, Hill had movement in all of his extremities and was being taken to a local medical facility for further evaluation.

A native of Youngstown, Ohio, who later moved to Ventura, California, Hill spent his college career at Oregon before beginning his NFL career as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2015. After a brief stint with the New England Patriots, he was claimed off waivers by the then-St. Louis Rams, who he spent five seasons with from 2016-2020.

This past offseason, the Browns signed the 30-year-old Hill to a two-year contract worth $9 million. Entering Sunday's game vs. the Patriots, he had appeared in all nine of Cleveland's games, tallying 36 tackles, two sacks and one pass defense while serving as the Browns' No. 1 slot cornerback. Before leaving Sunday's game, he had totaled five tackles.
