Hill is not expected to play in the Vikings' preseason finale versus the Rams on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After Teddy Bridgewater suffered a season-ending ACL tear on Tuesday, the Vikings decided they'll hold their veteran quarterback out to avoid an injury. Hill is currently the projected favorite to open up the season as the starting quarterback, but is still expected to sit out Thursday. With that being said, undrafted rookie Joel Stave is slated to see the majority of the reps against the Rams, although the Vikings will likely bring in another free agent quarterback to split reps with him.

Hill may begin the season as Minnesota's starting quarterback with Teddy Bridgewater suffering a significant knee injury in Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like Bridgewater will miss significant playing time if not the season, which would put Hill in line to start Week 1 against Tennessee. Minnesota's offense would likely be even more conservative with Hill, but Hill has looked good during the preseason and shouldn't be rattled by the assignment with 34 career starts. The Vikings will likely need to sign a veteran backup quarterback before the regular season.

Hill was 10-of-17 passing for 129 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Seattle. He started the game with Teddy Bridgewater being rested.

EDGE Analysis

With the Vikings reportedly cosidering signing Nick Foles, there were some questions whether the Vikings would stick with the 36-year old as the team's backup quarterback. After two preseason games where he's 16-for-24, he's likely quieted any talk that he can still play at age 36.

Hill was 6-of-7 for 52 yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Hill will reprise his role as Teddy Bridgewater's backup this season. However, it will take a serious injury to Bridgewater for Hill to warrant much fantasy attention.

Hill stepped in for concussed starter Teddy Bridgewater in Sunday's game against the Rams, completing 2-of-6 passes for 15 yards.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran saw his first action of the season Sunday, and actually led the Vikings to a game-winning field goal in overtime. It is unclear when Bridgewater will be able to return, but Hill is seemingly in line to start any games he misses. The Vikings will face off with a middling Raiders defense in Week 10, but Hill doesn't possess much fantasy potential, even in a starting role.

The Vikings have signed Hill, 1500espn.com reports.

The addition of the 35-year-old Hill -- whose deal ESPN.com relays is worth $6.5 million over the next two seasons -- gives the Vikings a capable and experienced backup to work behind the team's rising young starter at QB, Teddy Bridgewater.

Hill completed 26-of-37 passes for 243 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 20-6 loss at Seattle.

Both of his interceptions came in the second half, and one of them was returned for a touchdown to essentially ice the game. He played respectably, once the Rams benched Austin Davis, but he'll likely return to a reserve role, if he re-signs with St. Louis.

Hill completed 24 of 32 passes for 290 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Giants.

If you were desperate enough to start Hill this week, this is probably on the better end of what you could have hoped for. Don't expect a repeat performance next week at Seattle.

Hill completed 20-of-39 passes for 239 yards, with no touchdowns and an interception, in Thursday's 12-6 loss to the Cardinals. He added 11 yards on three carries.

Things went no better for the St. Louis offense than Hill's statistics indicate, as the team had five consecutive three-and-outs at one point in the contest. The running game was of little use, with Tre Mason gaining just 33 yards on 13 carries, and also coughing up a fumble. While Hill's mostly been solid this season, he has largely ridden the coattails of a red-hot Rams defense. He still figures to bounce back, at least to some extent, in a much friendlier matchup with the Giants next week.

Hill completed 16-of-22 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-0 win over Washington.

Hill connected with six different receivers, throwing both of his touchdowns to tight end Jared Cook. Despite relatively modest yardage totals, Hill has four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the last two games, and he's got a decent Week 15 matchup against the Cardinals, who are allowing the sixth-most passing yards per game this season.
