Peyton Hillis MRI Confirms Injured Hamstring

Madden Cursed or not, MRI results on Sept. 17 confirmed that Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis has an injured hamstring, but coach Pat Shurmer has not ruled Hillis out of the team's Week 7 game against the Seahawks.

Hillis is nursing a strained left hamstring, an injury Browns coach Pat Shurmur said happened on a carry in the first quarter of Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Raiders. An MRI taken Monday confirmed Hillis' injury, and Shurmur said it's too early to say he'll miss this week's game against Seattle.

"Those injuries can take a couple of days or they can take however long," Shurmur said. "But it's a hamstring injury."

While the latest trade rumors indicate that Hillis will not be dealt before Tuesday's Oct. 18 trade deadline, Hillis' season continues to take odd and unfortunate turns. After running for a cool 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, Hillis has gained just 211 yards and two touchdowns on a career-low 3.5 yards per carry this year as the Browns have stumbled to a 2-3 start.
