Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer is reporting that Peyton Hillis will likely miss another couple of weeks. He re-aggravated his hamstring injury in practice this week. With another injury to Montario Hardesty, the Browns will now need to rely on two guys who weren’t on a roster three weeks ago.
So his nightmare season continues. Hillis has been embroiled in a contract dispute with the Browns where he seems to have an inflated view of his value. He missed a game due to the flu, and then later acknowledged that his agent advised him not to play. And now the hamstring is acting up again. He’s missed three games and the Browns can’t move the ball on offense.
Just to cap things off, he blew off a bunch of kids on Halloween for a scheduled appearance, blaming his “management” for the mix-up. It’s gotten so bad that a group of Browns players had to hold an intervention about his attitude.
The golden boy is revealing himself to be a head case. Maybe the Browns dodged a bullet when he spurned their offer for a new deal.
And, maybe there is a Madden Curse.
