Peyton Hillis Returning This Weekend?

Browns head coach Pat Shurmur mentioned that RB Peyton Hillis should be a “full go” for Wednesday practice which should also give him a really got shot of returning to game action this weekend, per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Shurmur added that Hillis will reclaim the starter running back position once healthy which helps to squash rumors Montario Hardesty could be encroaching upon Hillis’s playing time. Hardesty’s performance last week was hardly inspiring considering that he averaged a meager 2.9 yards per carry on a staggering 33 carries. Still, Hillis has been dealing with a number of injuries this season which makes him a little unreliable at this point in time. We’ll have more throughout the week.
