Peyton Hillis Injury Update: Cleveland Browns Running Back Questionable Vs. Seahawks

The Cleveland Browns final injury report of the week came out on Friday afternoon with few surprises for those who read the reports coming out of Friday morning's practice. Of note, though, are status updates for Peyton Hillis, Joe Haden and Scott Fujita regarding Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Hillis has been dealing with a hamstring injury as of late, even missing a portion of last week's game after originally tweaking it in the third quarter. The Browns' star running back didn't practice at all this week, but he's listed as questionable for this weekend's game and will probably end up being a game-time decision.

While Hillis at least has a chance to play, Fujita has been ruled out for this weekend's game. Fujita suffered a concussion against the Oakland Raiders and was sent home by Cleveland head coach Pat Shurmur earlier in the week. The news on Haden is a bit better as he was able to participate in some of Friday's practice after being held out Wednesday and Thursday with a knee injury.

Joe Haden Returning To Practice For Browns, Peyton Hillis Misses Another

We have no official gameday status for anybody, but Scott Petrak is reporting that Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden has returned to practice with the team. Coach Pat Shurmur is supposed to update their status following practice, but it's significant for Haden, the team's number one corner and former first-round pick. He hasn't practiced or played since Oct. 2 in a loss to the Tennessee Titans, but reportedly lined up with the first team and looked good doing it.

Also of note was the fact that star running back Peyton Hillis missed another practice with a hamstring injury. There's no updates on his status or if he got to doing the running in the pool on Thursday, and he'll likely remain questionable for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Scott Fujita also did not practice, after being sent home on Wednesday and Thursday with post-concussion symptoms (which simply means "with a concussion") and the deadline for him to pass his post-concussion exam is fast-approaching. According to the report, Art Hicks and rookie cornerback Buster Skrine also returned to practice, but Ray Ventrone missed his third straight day.

Peyton Hillis Sits Out Practice Again, According To Report

According to Cleveland.com, Browns running back Peyton Hillis will once again sit out practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury. On Wednesday, Hillis was supposed to do "something," which we now know was going to be some light running, but he wasn't ready. According to the report, Hillis is set to do some running in the pool on Thursday, and remains day-to-day in regards to his status for Sunday's matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

In a bit of good news, cornerback Joe Haden did some light running again on Thursday, and though his status hasn't been elevated and he has yet to do a full practice, head coach Pat Shurmur did say that his feeling was that Haden, along with fellow defensive back Buster Skrine, would play on Sunday.

Linebacker Scott Fujita was once again sent home due to his concussion symptoms, and now it appears that it might be more serious than previously though. We thought Fujita had injured himself in the fourth quarter when he left the game, but he might have done so in the first quarter and continued to play with the injury:

Defensive coordinator Dick Jauron said he thinks Fujita suffered the concussion early in the Raiders game when he had some helmet-to-helmet contact. He remained in the game until the fourth quarter    

That would seem to make it more unlikely that Fujita plays on Sunday. A concussion is bad enough, but more contact immediately after it for another two quarters can only make things worse. Fujita would need to pass a concussion test to make sure he's back at his normal baseline before being cleared to play.
