On Friday, Carolina Panthers receiver Stephen Hill was making plays. By Saturday, he was wearing a floppy hat.

Hill sat out of Saturday’s practice after falling on his surgically repaired right knee.

“Apparently he landed on his knee and they just wanted to be careful with him and take the day off,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “He should be fine and be back (Sunday).”

Hill tore his ACL last year at training camp and missed all of the season. The coaching staff and players have spoken highly of Hill since his return.
