Report: Peyton Hillis has minor knee injury

Hillis AP

Buccaneers running back Peyton Hillis left the preseason opener vs. Baltimore with a leg injury, a tough break for a player competing for snaps behind starter Doug Martin.

However, it appears it’s just a small setback.

Per Jenna Laine of SportsTalkFlorida.com, Hillis suffered a hyperextended knee in Thursday’s preseason opener, and it’s an injury not expected to sideline him for long.

The Buccaneers’ next preseason game is in seven days, when Tampa Bay plays at New England.

Hillis signed with the Buccaneers in July after spending 2012 with Kansas City.

    Glazer’s kids are too envolved wit this team. They always want injured and troubled players.

    This guy was awesome that one year…you actually gotta give the Browns credit for not paying him an insane amount of money.
