After taking two big collisions in his first few carries on the night, the third one to Peyton Hillis’ knee knocked him out of the game.

Hillis, backing up Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, saw action in the second half of the Tampa Bay preseason opener vs. the Ravens, and he carried four times for 13 yards. But the last carry was when he took a bump to his knee from Ravens cornerback Asa Jackson, causing Hillis to fumble and immediately grab for his leg.

Hillis limped off the field and has not returned to the game.
