Peyton Hillis Status: Injury Report Says Questionable, But Could Miss Two Weeks

The Peyton Hillis injury saga has been something to watch nearly every week for the Cleveland Browns and, after the team released it's final injury report of the week, it seems that won't be getting any better. The running back is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, but reports are the injury might be much worse.

Hillis is expected to miss at least a couple of weeks after re-injuring his hamstring Friday, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer. His MRI apparently showed "significant aggravation," causing the downgrade in his status among those close to the team. 

Fellow running back Montario Hardesty was also listed as out on the team's final injury report of the week, leaving Chris Ogbonnaya and Thomas Clayton as the team's only healthy backs. Ogbonnaya is expected to start on Sunday if Hillis is out as reported.

Defensive back Dmitri Patterson and defensive lineman Auston English are the only other players ruled out for this weekend. Along with Hillis, Tony Pashos, Ray Ventrone and Kaluka Maiava are all listed as questionable after being limited in the final practice of the week.
