Peyton Hillis Injury: Browns RB Out Versus Rams

Peyton Hillis of the Cleveland Browns will be out of action against the St. Louis Rams this week.

The Cleveland Browns will be without running back and recent distraction Peyton Hillis. The man Josh McDaniels sent to Cleveland for Brady Quinn is dealing with a hamstring injury he re-aggravated in practice. The injury is being called a significant strain. Former Rams seventh-round pick Chris Ogbonnaya will take over the bulk of rushing duties with Hillis on the shelf. 

Montario Hardesty is out with a calf injury. Hillis may really be suffering from the dreaded Madden Curse, but I don't really believe in curses. 

Ogbonnaya is struggling. He fumbled twice in his last two games, blew blitz pick ups and averaged less than three yards per carry. It makes you think that the Rams maybe saw something after all when they made the decision to cut him. 

The Browns present the Rams with a pretty favorable matchup, certainly for the Rams defense. They may also be without wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, who is dealing with concussion-like symptoms.
