NY Jets running back Breece Hall is officially one year removed from the torn ACL that prematurely ended his rookie season after just seven games a year ago.
On Monday, Hall took to Twitter to post about the one-year anniversary of his devastating knee injury. Unfortunately, the wording of Hall's tweet temporarily sent some Jets fans into panic mode.
Hall began his tweet with, "Found out I tore my ACL," causing stomachs around the NFL world to drop momentarily. Even NFL Network's Ian Rapoport jokingly remarked that Hall's tweet was a surefire way to cause a heart attack with some poor Jets fan.
Thankfully, Hall is perfectly fine. The Jets' star running back was simply expressing gratitude for what he's been able to accomplish since coming back. He's not taking any day for granted.
Breece Hall is arguably the NY Jets MVP through six weeks
Hall returned from his ACL injury quicker than most expected, and the former Iowa State standout has shown no signs of rust since coming back, even if the Jets attempted to keep him on a snap count early in the season.
Hall leads all qualified running backs with an excellent 6.5 yards per carry over the first seven weeks of the season. He's single-handedly carried the Jets offense in multiple games and is arguably the most important player on the roster.
The Jets rank top-15 in the NFL in EPA per play on offense with Hall on the field and close to dead-last in the league without him. He's one of the only reasons the offense has looked competent for most of this season.
What makes Hall's impressive 2023 performance even more remarkable is that he's done all of this while still under a year removed from his torn ACL. What Hall has done this season has been shades of 2012 Adrian Peterson, returning from the same injury to rush for 2,000 yards and win MVP.
While Hall isn't quite on pace for 2,000 yards, he is on pace for over 1,200 yards, and that's with him playing on a snap count for the majority of the year to this point — not to mention playing a gauntlet of some of the NFL's best defenses.
Despite his momentarily worrisome tweet this morning, Breece Hall is as healthy as he's ever been. The Jets look forward to seeing more of their star running back's brilliance over the coming months.
