In another blow to his comeback attempt, the Akron Beacon Journal is reporting that running back Peyton Hillis aggravated his hamstring injury during Friday morning's practice. Head coach Pat Shurmur should have more on the situation later.
Running back Peyton Hillis aggravated his injured left hamstring today during practice. Hillis took a handoff, ran off right guard, stood straight up and started limping off the field. He then threw the ball and his helmet in frustration. Hillis hobbled to the sideline, placed his hands on his knees and put his head down. He then stood up, placed his hands on his hips and talked to a trainer. He walked off the practice field with a trainer as the open period closed to media. Hillis has missed the Browns' past two games after pulling his left hamstring Oct. 16 against the Oakland Raiders. He spoke to reporters after returning to practice Thursday and expressed his excitement about the prospect of playing again.
