Peyton Hillis Rests Friday; Expected To Play Against Atlanta, While Delhomme Is Still Questionable

According to this report, Browns' running back Peyton Hillis did not practice on Friday, but is expected to play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons at the Stadium.

Browns' head coach Eric Mangini is not worried. He said Hillis was just getting some extra rest and is still expected to play Sunday.

Meanwhile, the story with quarterback Jake Delhomme is not so clear. Delhomme, who is still recovering from a high-ankle sprain, has missed three weeks and is still limited in practice.

"He's much further ahead than where we were last week," Mangini said of Delhomme. "He'll get a little more work today. In my mind it comes down to how he feels tomorrow."
