Peyton Hillis Probable, Expected To Start Vs Ravens

Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis practiced fully throughout the week and is expected to start against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Coming off a breakout season in 2010 -- 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns with 61 receptions out of the backfield -- Hillis has had a forgettable 2011 season that has featured two agent changes, a missed game due to an illness that prompted reports that teammates were questioning his commitment to the club, and five games missed due to a troublesome hamstring injury.

Hillis' absence and behavior during the first three months, including skipping out on a therapy session to return to Arkansas for a mid-week wedding, cost Hillis considerable capital with the Browns faithful, who voted en masse to put the 6-foot-2, 240-pound Hillis on the cover of Madden '12.

Hillis returned to the field last week, carrying the ball 19 times for 65 yards with two receptions for -4 yards.

"I'm starting to get back into the groove of things," Hillis said on Thursday according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.
