Growing pains for Stephen Hill
By Jane McManus
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It was a rough night for New York Jets receiver Stephen Hill. He reached for an opponent's facemask in a burst of frustration -- costing the Jets 15 yards -- fumbled a catch and was taken after the game to have his wrist X-rayed.
Stephen Hill made four receptions, but he fumbled this one away.
"I fell on it when I got pass interference," Hill said. "I just taped it up and as a precaution they just wanted to make sure that wasn't anything wrong with it. Everything's good."
Hill caught all four balls sent his way for 56 yards as the Jets defeated the New York Giants 24-21 in overtime. He said he had a decent enough night with a caveat: "Minus the fumble. I wish I could have gotten that back."
