On The Mend: Peyton Hillis Close To Resuming Action

According to this report via NFL.com, Browns' running back Peyton Hillis is feeling better, has returned to team meetings and might be ready to practice on Wednesday as Cleveland gets ready to face the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

Hillis missed the Miami game with strep throat, and his absence was sorely missed against the Dolphins, although all was well in the end when the Browns pulled out a 17-16 victory.

Hillis had stayed with the team at their hotel on Saturday, but his symptoms worsened and he was sent back home a couple of hours before game time.

Let's hope that Peyton really is good to go come Sunday. Colt McCoy fared well in the last drive vs. the Dolphins, but it is clear that he missed the presence of Hillis in the backfield (although Montario Hardesty did a good job "in relief" as it were, rushing for 67 yards on 14 carries).
