    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Takes backseat to Anderson

    Hillman had 14 carries for 59 yards and a touchdown, adding one catch for zero yards on one target, in Sunday's 30-24 overtime win over the Patriots. Hillman was outplayed by C.J. Anderson, who got far more snaps in the second half, eventually finishing with a 15-113-2 rushing line and four catches for 40 yards. Anderson may get the first shot against a soft Chargers defense next week, but both running backs figure to stay involved.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: 102 yards in win over Bears

    Hillman rushed 21 times for 102 yards and caught his only target for two receiving yards Sunday against the Bears. Hillman has now reached the 100-yard mark three times this season, though he still doesn't have a firm stronghold on the backfield, as C.J. Anderson rushed 12 times for 59 yards and caught both of his targets for 13 receiving yards. One major difference Sunday was that Brock Osweiler, starting in place of the injured Peyton Manning (foot/ribs), took a vast majority of his snaps from under center, as opposed to Manning who constantly worked out of the shotgun or pistol formation. Hillman had previously indicated that he doesn't like running out of those formations, and it was clear Sunday that he is more productive when the quarterback is under center. The two will continue to share touches, though Hillman will get the first opportunities, and if he plays well, will get a majority of the carries. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against the Patriots, who came into Sunday allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game this season.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Will start Sunday

    Hillman (quad) will start Sunday against the Bears, head coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday. Hillman has started the past few games after outplaying C.J. Anderson earlier in the season, though the two continue to share carries, with Hillman getting a slightly bigger workload. While Hillman will get an opportunity to keep getting touches if he plays well, there's the issue that if he struggles, Anderson could take over, limiting any upside.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Scores in loss

    Hillman (quad) rushed 11 times for 42 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes on four targets for nine receiving yards Sunday against the Chiefs. The Broncos' were dominated throughout the game, trailing 19-0 at halftime and 22-0 heading into the fourth quarter, which is why Hillman wasn't given too many rushing attempts. On the plus side, he had nine more carries than C.J. Anderson, who turned his two touches into nine yards. The two backs are likely to split carries in Week 11 against the Bears, who are coached by former Broncos coach John Fox, though Hillman will continue to get the first looks and could dominate the touches if he plays well.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Rushes for one yard in loss

    Hillman (thigh) rushed seven times for just one yard and failed to get targeted in the passing game during Sunday's loss to the Colts. Hillman was officially listed as questionable heading into Sunday after being limited in practice all week, and while his production was awful, he finished with the same number of touches as C.J. Anderson, though the latter went for 34 yards. The thigh didn't appear to be an issue, but the two will likely continue to split touches, regardless of who starts. Up next is a Week 10 matchup against the Chiefs, who have allowed just four rushing touchdowns this season.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Draws questionable designation for Sunday

    Hillman (thigh) was limited at practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's 4:25 ET game against the Colts. That said, the Denver Post relays that coach Gary Kubiak expects the running back to play and start for the Broncos on Sunday. "He's going to be fine. He looked a lot better today than he did yesterday," Kubiak said Friday of Hillman, who absorbed a hard hit during Week 8's contest that limited him in the second half. Though he's now listed as the team's No. 1 running back -- assuming Hillman suits up this weekend -- per Kubiak, he is expected share work in the Broncos' Week 9 backfield with C.J. Anderson.

    Broncos' Ronnie Hillman: Set to start again, but share carries with Anderson

    Though he was limited some by a thigh bruise in Thursday's practice, Hillman is slated to earn his second straight start at running back Sunday against the Colts, the Denver Post reports. While the assignment is an acknowledgment of Hillman's solid work this season, coach Gary Kubiak suggested Thursday that he sees both Hillman and C.J. Anderson as starters and expects the duo to split the team's RB snaps "right down the middle."
