Hillis has apologized, but only one thing is going to get him back in the good graces of Browns fans: Playing again. Playing effectively wouldn’t hurt.
It now sounds like the Browns cautiously expect Hillis to return from a hamstring injury against the Texans this Sunday. He practiced on Thursday, which is great news for a team that lost Montario Hardesty to injury last week.
Cleveland is 3-4, but no one takes them seriously because they don’t have a win over a quality opponent. A victory in Houston would change that.
(Not that we expect it to happen.)
