Running back P.J. Hill was re-signed to the practice squad on Wednesday. Hill was waived on Tuesday to make room on the 53-man active roster for tight end Martin Rucker.
Hill spent the first seven weeks of the season on the Saints practice squad before he was signed to the Eagles' active roster on Oct. 28. He was active for the New York Giants game on Nov. 1, but did not play. He was inactive for the past six games before Tuesday's release.
Hill rushed for 3,942 yards and scored 42 touchdowns during his college career at Wisconsin. He joined former Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne as the only running backs in Wisconsin's history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons. He was originally signed by the Saints as a rookie free agent following this year's draft.
