"It's going to be hard for me to just say, 'Let's thrust him in there again and let him go again,'" Jackson said, per ESPN.com. "We've got to work him back into our process and how we do things. What will determine that is just how fast and how we think he is ready to go. He had a tremendous practice (Wednesday) and we'll see where this thing goes."
"He deserves it," Jackson said. "Jeremy has done tremendous (work) and he has earned the right to play, there's no question about that."
Hill leads the NFL with 361 yards in November and his 556 rushing yards this season leads all rookies.
While Bernard's return will add a dynamic element on outside runs and in the passing game, it's clear that the Bengals can use Hill as their workhorse when needed.
