One year removed from the experience, New York Jets RB Breece Hall reflects on his ACL injury
In a Tuesday afternoon post on X, New York Jets running back Breece Hall mentioned that it was one year to the day that he tore his ACL in Denver, and he reflected positively on how things have transpired since then.
Found out I Tore My ACL a year ago today. Look at God man🤞🏾 Answered all my prayers and then some🙏🏾

At the team’s media availability Tuesday, Hall spoke again about his knee injury and its recovery process.
“It’s been a crazy year. Ups and downs, frustrations, tears, everything. I just stayed prayed up throughout the whole process, worked my tail off, and I’m here today,” said Hall.
Hall has been the Jets’ offensive engine ever since returning from injury, consistently generating big plays for New York as both a rusher and receiver. He is averaging 6.5 yards per rush attempt, ranking first in the NFL among running backs with a minimum of 50 rushing attempts. In addition, he has caught 13 passes for 113 yards.
Hall is tied for third in the league with six rushes of 15 yards or more and, according to PFF, has the most breakaway yards (yards gained on carries of 15+ yards) out of all running backs with 257.
As Hall gets healthier, the Jets will continue to place a heavier load on his shoulders. His snap count has been on the rise since Robert Saleh declared the Jets were taking him off a “pitch count” ahead of the Jets’ Week 5 game against Denver. Hall played a season-high 52% of the Jets’ offensive snaps in Week 5 and he surpassed that once more with a 66% rate in Week 6.
If his prior play has been any indication, the star running back should have no issue shouldering the load for the Jets’ offense.
