Cleveland Browns RB Peyton Hillis Out for Sunday's Game Against Miami Dolphins

Adam Schefter just reported on Sunday NFL Countdown that the Cleveland Browns will be without running back Peyton Hillis due to Hillis having strep throat.

Hillis has been battling the illness for a couple of days now, and he made it to the stadium to try and play it out, but speaking from experience, there is very little anyone—even someone as fit as Hillis—can do with a case of strep throat.

Expect Montario Hardesty to see a significant increase in playing time.
