Browns' Running Back Peyton Hillis Has MRI Scheduled

The Cleveland Browns suffered a listless 24-17 loss tot he Oakland Raiders on Sunday, but they may have suffered an even bigger loss on Monday morning. Running back Peyton Hillis suffered an apparent injury on Sunday and now has an MRI scheduled according to SBNation’s Dawgs By Nature:

"Coaches decision" technically covers injury situations, but I would say that in general, "coaches decision" in sports refers to a non-injury related decision. Shortly after that, Cabot and the rest of the media announced that it was due to a hamstring injury. Hillis did re-enter the game in the fourth quarter, but he explained why everything happened the way it did on Sunday:

(On when the injury happened): "It was my second run when I went outside and one of the defensive backs pushed me out of bounds and I overextended," he said. "I tried to play there a couple of series afterward the best I could."

(Shurmur did not go against his word): "That's nobody's fault," said Hillis, referring to Shurmur not being able to give Hillis the bulk of the carries due to his injury. "You pull a hamstring, you try to go out there and do your best. It's nobody's fault. It's just unfortunate, disappointing."

(On why he went in to block late in the game): "I felt it was a critical part in the game," said Hillis. "I didn't want to leave Montario hanging out there, so I felt if I could go in there and do a little pass protection, do what I could do to help the team win...it probably wasn't the smartest thing to do," he said. "But I wanted to help the team win. I was anxious to get out there and help. It was a critical point, we were just two possessions down and if we got that touchdown -- you saw how things worked out with the onside kick and stuff, we knew it was within reach."
