Peyton Hillis still in a walking boot Wednesday, Week 4 fantasy status in doubt

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Peyton Hillis was spotted still wearing a walking boot at Chiefs practice Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Hillis was spotted still wearing a walking boot at Kansas City Chiefs practice Wednesday, the Kansas City Star reports. Hillis suffered an ankle injury during last Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints. The is no word yet on his Week 4 availability.

Fantasy Impact: Be sure to check with injury reports Thursday and Friday, but the fact that Hillis is still in a walking boot does not bode well for his availability for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Hillis has gotten off to a slow start this season, with 21 carries for 93 yards and zero touchdowns over the first three weeks. After Jamaal Charles went off over the weekend, it's difficult to see Hillis playing much more than a backup role once he's able to return to the field.
