Peyton Hillis misses Thursday practice, lowering fantasy status

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Peyton Hillis misses a second straight day of practice and is unlikely to play in Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, reports Nick Jacobs. Hillis left Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints with a sprained ankle, and was still wearing a walking boot as late as Wednesday. He is unlikely to suit up this week against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Hillis has struggled to get much of anything going this season, with just 93 rushing yards and no touchdowns. Meanwhile, Jamaal Charles exploded back onto the fantasy scene with 288 yards from scrimmage against the Saints, and is set for another big game against the Chargers after not being listed on injury reports. Shane Draughn will be the primary backup again if Hillis can't go.
