Peyton Hillis out at least another week

Cleveland's Peyton Hillis celebrates scoring on the Colts during an NFL football game in Indianapolis Reuters

The cursed season of Browns running back Peyton Hillis continues.

Hillis, who has already missed five games this season, will miss another one on Sunday when the Jaguars come to Cleveland, coach Pat Shurmur confirmed today.

Sunday’s game will be the fifth in a row that Hillis has missed with a hamstring injury. He also missed one game with an illness. When he has played, he hasn’t been particularly good: He has just 211 yards on 60 carries.

Amid increasing talk that Hillis is not a popular man in the Browns’ locker room, it’s generally agreed upon that Hillis won’t be back in Cleveland next year, after his contract expires at the end of this season. The way things are going, we wonder if he’ll ever play another game in a Browns uniform.

    I hope that hamstring snaps like a rubberband.

    just cut him and move on. Perhaps you can make an under the table agreement with the Broncos where they release quinn so you can trade back?

    @tuckyous …

    Just curious … are you a Browns fan? Yikes!

    Anyone out there think he’ll get that big contract when he hits free agency?

    I’ve a feeling that NFL players would prefer castration over appearing on the Madden cover.

    People in cleveland are mean

    Vick is proving the “Madden curse” extends to the runner-ups as well

    Hillis went at this whole contract thing all wrong.
    Desean Jackson needs to read this as well.
    Look at Arian Foster, playing his butt off, doing a good job and not saying a word about a new contract. Instead of crying and listening to that stupid agent, Hillis needed to suck it up and crack some heads out there.

    Man if I would have known that the madden curse works this well I would have voted for Vick instaed of Hillis for the cover.

    No rest for the weary. Oh wait this is the NFL , the players call the shots. AP did it right, that’s because AP is the one of those that truely calls the shots.

    Of course he is. Perhaps McDaniels knew what he was doing all along.

    I never thought I would say that.

    Madden curse? It sounds like Hillis’s swollen ego got him more than anything else. Another one hit just like Vanilla Ice.

  13. rocket24man says: Nov 14, 2011 3:43 PM

    Everyone that is surprised by Hillis being out again, say “I”.

  14. radrhatr says: Nov 14, 2011 4:08 PM

    I vote for Aaron Rodgers as next year’s Madden cover.

  15. tfbuckfutter says: Nov 14, 2011 4:10 PM

    I heard his status was upgraded to Doubtful…..

    Oh wait, that’s for next season. Nevermind.

    With Marecic opening gaping holes 4 Clayton & Ogbo, who needs a Hillis or Vickers. The Browns could eff up a free lunch.

  17. Deb says: Nov 14, 2011 4:43 PM

    Why did I get all those thumbs down for asking if the guy who wants Hillis’s hamstring to snap is a Browns fan? I’m just wondering if the home team really hates him that much.

  18. dredddog says: Nov 14, 2011 4:44 PM

    Ruled him out on a Tuesday last week and now on a Monday? That hammy didnt look that bad 3 weeks ago when he was hurling footballs towards the cross bars. This guy is a joke….thanks for nothing..hit the road.

  19. stoneydog1000 says: Nov 14, 2011 4:52 PM

    he’ll end up with the Pats ala Corey Dillon

  20. edmazeing1 says: Nov 14, 2011 4:53 PM

    I can see hillis next year backing up Run DMc again, only if we lose Bush tho!!!

    A very very credible source told me that Peyton Hillis went to a local sporting goods store to buy a gun to go hunting. He was denied the sale and proceeded to go the route of “do you know who i am?!” instead of fixing the reason he was unable to buy the gun (out of state ID card). Sounds like a real turdburglar.

    Yea, that’s it, deb. Judge an entire fan base on the comment of a message board post.
