The New York Jets will no longer be limiting Breece Hall’s workload

Breece Lightning is ready to strike in full force once again.

During Wednesday’s media availability, New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh announced that the star running back will no longer be on a pitch count.

Saleh said they would “love to get him going” in reference to Hall and spoke about where the running back stands as the Jets prepare for the Denver Broncos.

“Everyone loves him. He’s been working hard. I will say this: he ran violently last week in practice, and I felt like it carried over in the game. You can tell he’s starting to get his legs underneath him,” said Saleh.

“Even though he’s had production, he still hasn’t reached what we know he’s capable of and what he’s shown in the past, but he is another one that’s trending in the right direction.”

Even with a limited workload, Hall has been extremely effective this season. He has averaged 6.5 yards per rush attempt, forced seven missed tackles, and recorded three runs of 25 yards or more. The Iowa State product has looked quick and elusive. Furthermore, he has been able to break off big runs without having his top speed yet.

With Dalvin Cook struggling in his role up to this point, Hall has no reason not to lead the backfield in touches by a considerable margin. Hall can break games open, and without the limitations of a pitch count, there is no excuse for the running back not to be used as that type of weapon.
