Houston Vs. Cleveland Injury Report: Who Will The Browns Start At Running Back?

Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur noted on Wednesday that running back Peyton Hillis was expected to practice but instead he spent the day with training staff because of a strained hamstring he's still suffering from. Hillis did not play versus San Francisco after not practicing the week before.

The plot thickens for the Browns and their tailback woes, as they are now without their primary backup, Montario Hardesty for at least a month. Hardesty partially tore a calf muscle in their game versus San Francisco, and now the Browns will have to lean on former Houston Texan tailback Chris Ogbonnaya to step in and carry the load. 

Here is the full report on the Cleveland Browns as they prepare for the Houston Texans on Sunday:

Name Position Injury Status
English, Auston DL Knee DNP
Gocong, Chris LB Shoulder LP
Hardesty, Montario RB Calf DNP
Hillis, Peyton RB Hamstring DNP
Lauvao, Shawn OL Knee FP
Maiava, Kaluka LB Knee LP
Massaquoi, Mohamed WR Head DNP
Pashos, Tony OL Ankle LP
Patterson, Dimitri DB Knee DNP
Ventrone, Ray DB Hamstring DNP
Ward, T. J. DB Knee LP
