Kenny Hilliard: Let go by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was waived by the Redskins on Tuesday.

Hilliard was signed to a reserve/future contract with the Redskins in January after a three-day stint on the team's 53-man roster. He ultimately returned to the practice squad during the 2017 season. The 26-year-old will hope to garner offseason interest elsewhere in the lead-up to April's draft.

Redskins' Kenny Hilliard: Signs reserve/future contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Hilliard spent three days on the Redskins 53-man roster as injuries decimated the team's running backs, but he was inactive for his lone game with the team. The 26-year-old joined the practice squad shortly thereafter and will have a full spring in the team's offseason program to prepare for training camp.

Kenny Hilliard: Joins practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was signed to the Redskins' practice squad Thursday.

Hilliard was waived by the Redskins on Tuesday and spent less than a week on the 53-man roster. The 26-year-old was a healthy inactive for Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Kenny Hilliard: Waived by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins waived Hilliard on Tuesday, according to the league's official transactions log.

Hilliard had been signed to the active roster Saturday after the Redskins placed yet another running back, rookie LeShun Daniels (hand), on injured reserve. With Hilliard no longer in the fold, Washington will move forward with Kapri Bibbs and Dare Ogunbowale as the reserves behind starting tailback Samaje Perine.

Redskins' Kenny Hilliard: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins signed Hilliard to a contract Saturday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

With Samaje Perine dealing with a groin injury and LeShun Daniels (hand) having landed on injured reserve, Hilliard gives the Redskins added depth in the backfield ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Broncos. Even if Perine is sidelined in Week 16, Kapri Bibbs would still be in line to take on the bulk of the backfield work, limiting Hilliard's fantasy prospects.

Kenny Hilliard: Cut by Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was waived by the Redskins on Friday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Hilliard faced long odds of cracking an RB group that already included a few more capable prospects at the position. He'll be eligible to sign elsewhere upon clearing waivers.

Redskins' Kenny Hilliard: Gets one snap in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard played one snap in Saturday's preseason loss to the Packers.

A late addition to the Washington backfield, Hilliard remains on the very bottom of the totem pole. It seems unlikely that he'll see substantially more work in Sunday's tilt with the Bengals, with the Redskins expected to treat the contest as a dress rehearsal for the regular season. This leaves the 25-year-old on the outside looking in for a roster spot.

Redskins' Kenny Hilliard: Signs with Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard signed with Washington on Monday, Stephen Czarda of Redskins.com reports.

Hilliard joins Washington on the same day the team released fellow tailback Keith Marshall with an injury designation. A seventh-round pick in 2015, Hilliard's NFL involvement has thus far been limited to a spot on the Texans' practice squad.

Kenny Hilliard: Released by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was released by the Texans on Tuesday.

Hilliard finished 2016 as a member of the Texans' practice squad but was never elevated to the active roster. Houston has a number of running backs battling for a spot behind Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue this offseason -- including talented rookie D'Onta Foreman -- while it elected to keep Dare Ogunbowale, another first-year back, and Akeem Hunt through this round of cuts.

Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Signs futures contract with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard signed a futures contract with the Texans on Monday, The Houston Chronicle reports.

Hilliard, who finished the season on the Texans' practice squad, is yet to see any game action since being taken in the seventh round out of LSU back in 2015. He'll likely contend for No. 3 duties behind Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue.

Kenny Hilliard: Signed to Houston's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard has been signed to the Texans' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Houston fills the opening on its practice squad after promoting Akeem Hunt to the active roster last week. The Texans drafted Hilliard in the seventh round out of LSU in 2015, and he spent his rookie season on the team's practice squad. He showed up at 2016 training camp in better condition and was given a good chance in preseason games, but he had some problems holding onto the football before being part of the final cuts.

Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Waived by Texans Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was Waived by Houston on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Hilliard led all Houston running backs in rushing attempts during the preseason, but he had a costly fumble in the red zone on Thursday while fellow back Akeem Hunt had two touchdowns.

Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Leading rusher, but fumbles in preseason Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard led Houston's backs with 86 rushing yards Thursday, but also lost a fumble in the red zone of the Texans' win over the Cowboys in preseason Week 4.

HIlliard got a lot of work during the preseason, leading all backs in rushing attempts, but that red-zone fumble may be what costs him a roster spot. His main competition for the fifth spot in the backfield, Akeem Hunt, scored two touchdowns while showing more versatility than Hilliard.

Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Minor role in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard had three second-half carries for zero yards during Houston's win over Arizona in preseason Week 3.

Hilliard was used heavily the first two weeks of preseason, but his Week 3 usage is a better indicator of his status on the depth chart. At this point, Lamar Miller, Alfred Blue and Tyler Ervin are locks at running back while Jay Prosch is set at fullback. That leaves, at most, one more spot in the backfield. Hilliard, Akeem Hunt and Jonathan Grimes will be fighting for that final spot when the Texans face the Cowboys in their preseason finale Thursday.

Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Leader in backfield touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard led Houston's backs with seven rushing attempts in Saturday's win over New Orleans in preseason week 2. He gained 11 yards for an average of 1.6 per carry.

Hilliard was coming off a nice preseason Week 1 and was given ample first-half opportunities against the Saints, but could not replicate his production from the previous week. That might have something to do with an offensive line that was missing four of five starters, while getting carries against an opponent's front-line players. Nevertheless, the Texans are giving him a good look, calling his number for a team-high 19 preseason carries. That suggests he's in the mix for work if Alfred Blue's shoulder injury lingers into the regular season.

Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Needs to take care of the ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard was given a lot of opportunities in Houston's preseason opener, something head coach Bill O'Brien spoke about Tuesday, but made particular mention of taking care of the ball.

Hilliard was the rushing star of the game, leading Houston with 40 yards and adding another 17 via the air, but all O'Brien wanted to mention was his fumble on Houston's final play of the game. Hilliard's good work will not go unnoticed, but he's got an real battle to make the roster. He's more likely to be a special-teams player before he earns a spot in the backfield.

Texans' Kenny Hilliard: Rushing leader in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard rushed for a team-high 40 yards on 12 carries in Houston's preseason opener against the 49ers on Sunday. He added one reception for 17 yards.

Hilliard and was given a lot of work in the opener, something that doesn't align with his spot on the depth chart. While noticeably leaner and quicker than he was a year ago when he spent the 2015 season on the practice squad -- he showed some elusiveness during his time on the field Sunday -- Hilliard needs to have a big camp to earn a spot among the top four running backs.

Hilliard will remain at LSU for his senior season, NOLA.com reports.Hilliard didn't seem to have a great chance at being an early-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, so he'll stay in school in hopes of boosting his stock for the 2015. He ran for 310 yards and seven touchdowns on 68 carries last season, but should see an increased workload with Jeremy Hill and Alfred Blue announcing their intentions to go pro.
