Falcons looking for more decisive runs from rookie Hill

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Rookie running back Brian Hill is still adjusting to the speed of the NFL as he tries to win a backup job with the Atlanta Falcons.

The problem is there isn't much time in the preseason for Hill to make that adjustment.

Hill and Terron Ward are considered the favorites to win a backup job behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.
