Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis has caused some issues lately and has proved to be a little troublesome, on and off the field. First there was the controversy as to whether or not he could have played with an illness to now he's skipping out on team events. Hillis was scheduled to be at a Halloween event for families and their children hosted by former Browns center LeCharles Bentley.
The reason for Hillis' no show is unknown at this time. Bentley helped organize the event for the local Boys And Girls Club on Broadway Avenue, as he is a board member.
From the official press release promoting the event:
Peyton Hillis and LeCharles Bentley are hosting a Halloween party for Cleveland families at the Boys & Girls Club at 6114 Broadway Avenue on Monday, October 31st from 6-7pm. They will be airing a live Monday Night Fooball radio show on ITTR Radio / LBentleyRadio.com and providing autographs and candy to attendees. All donations will benefit the Boys & Girls Club.
Hillis has played in only four games this season, dealing with injuries. His yards per carry and overall yardage are down significantly from his breakout 2010 season.
