Peyton Hillis spotted in walking boot Monday, Week 4 fantasy status unclear

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis was spotted in a walking boot Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Hillis had his ankle protected by a walking boot during Kansas City Chiefs practice Monday, the Kansas City Star reports. Hillis injured his ankle during Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints. He finished the day with just three carries for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Romeo Crennel said that he wasn't sure whether Hillis or RB/WR Dexter McCluster would be available for the team's Week 4 bout against the San Diego Chargers. Neither back figures to serve anything more than a complementary role after Jamaal Charles exploded for 288 total yards (233 rushing) and a touchdown Sunday. Hillis should be considered a handcuff-only option in standard fantasy leagues until further notice.
