Peyton Hillis Sits Out Practice Again, According To Report

According to, 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.
