Peyton Hillis out at least another week


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.
