Peyton Hillis Injury Update: Browns RB Likely Out

Peyton Hillis will travel with the Cleveland Browns to San Francisco as they take on a hot 49ers team. Despite traveling, Hillis is not expected to play. He's missed practice all week with a hamstring injury and is officially listed as questionable for the game. The last time Hillis missed practice all week and was listed as questionable, he was inactive.

With Hillis not looking to play, expect Montario Hardesty to get the starting nod. Hardesty should only be a fantasy option for you if you're in an emergency situation at running back. He's likely going to only get first and second down carries with Chris Ogbonnaya getting the work on third downs and obvious passing situations. Hardesty has 238 rushing yards on the season, but is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry.
