Hilliard (concussion) won't play in Monday's game versus the Jets, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Hilliard only had one carry in Week 1 versus the Titans, but it was a four-yard touchdown run that stole fantasy points from Nick Chubb owners. With Hilliard's absence, D'Ernest Johnson will work as the Browns' backup to Chubb, though Johnson isn't expected to have an established role, either.
Hilliard (concussion) missed practice again Friday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Hilliard has one more chance to return to practice before the Browns' final Week 2 injury report is released, but if he's unavailable Monday night, look for D'Ernest Johnson to be the team's top option on kick returns against the Jets, as well as Nick Chubb's backup at running back.
Hilliard (concussion) isn't practicing Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Hilliard still has some time to gain medical clearance to play Monday night against the Jets but if that doesn't happen, D'Ernest Johnson would be next up for the Browns' running back touches that don't go to starter Nick Chubb.
Hilliard (concussion) isn't participating in Tuesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. The Browns won't release their first Week 2 practice report until Thursday, but Hilliard looks like he might not be ready to log even limited participation at that point while he works through the NFL's five-phase concussion protocol. Even a return to practice by the end of the week wouldn't ensure Hilliard's availability for the Monday night matchup with the Jets, as he'll need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist in order to suit up for the contest. If Hilliard ends up sitting out Week 2, D'Ernest Johnson would step in as the top backup to starting running back Nick Chubb.
Hilliard (concussion) is ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest against the Titans, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Hilliard will turn his attention towards clearing the league's concussion protocol. Prior to exiting Sunday's contest Hilliard logged racked up four yards and a touchdown on his sole carry, while catching one of his two targets for 14 yards.
