Peyton Hillis Injury Update: Browns Running Back Aggravates Hamstring Injury In Friday Practice

In news that is not particularly surprising given the way the season has gone, Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis aggravated his hamstring at practice Friday and is once again looking like a game-time decision at best. Hillis apparently threw the ball and his helmet in frustration after pulling up lame on a run.

Although Hillis could be fine by Sunday, one has to imagine the Browns will likely sit him once again given the hamstring aggravation. If Hillis is unable to go, Chris Ogbonnaya would get the start and Thomas Clayton would be his backup. They are facing a Houston Texans squad that is not particularly good in defending the run. If the Browns are going to stay in the game, they will need to control the time of possession as much as possible.

For now, we will wait for comments from head coach Pat Shurmur and of course the pre-game inactive list on Sunday.
