A midseason report on the Browns RBs (not good): “To say that the running backs unit has fallen short of expectations would be an understatement. It’s not a talent issue, it is an injury issue. Hillis has basically only played in three games, and two of those games involves questionable usage of his abilities. Hardesty stepped in fairly well for two games before suffering an injury. Jackson never made it past the preseason with a turf toe.
If the Browns end up re-signing Hillis, all three backs will be back next year. I still have confidence in Hillis and Jackson, but it’s tougher to say with Hardesty given his injury history.” [Chris Pokorny/Dawgs by Nature]
