Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reports on the final day of preparation for the 0-2 Dolphins, Peyton Hillis — who rushed for two touchdowns and 94 yards last week — dragged himself into work feeling crummy and went home to sip fluids and rest. He’s listed as questionable for the game, meaning he’s 50-50 to play.
The Browns also wanted him away from the facility to prevent other players from getting sick.
“He just wasn’t feeling well,” said coach Pat Shurmur. “It just happens this time of year, so we felt the best course of action was just to send him home. We’ll see how he’s doing, but whatever it is, we don’t feel like it’s going to affect him on Sunday. My thoughts are that he’ll be there.”
