Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Inks deal with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard (knee) will remain with the Browns after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent Monday.

Hilliard was injured in a Week 16 game against the Ravens with the knee injury and wasn't able to finish out the season. The 25-year-old was used sparingly in 2019, rushing for 49 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. With Nick Chubb under contract and Kareem Hunt retained via a second-round tender, Hilliard appears in line for a depth role again in 2020.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Hilliard suffered the injury in Week 16's loss to the Ravens. He finishes the season with 13 rushing attempts for 49 yards and two touchdowns to go with 12 catches on 15 targets for 92 yards. The 24-year-old also amassed 528 return yards.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Ravens, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Hilliard was forced to leave the game after a low hit from Marcus Peters, and the injury is serious enough to keep him out. D'Ernest Johnson should continue to see No. 3 running back reps, with Tavierre Thomas to handle kick return duties. Expect the team to have specifics on the injury in the coming days.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Hilliard was flipped by Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters shortly after making a catch and immediately grabbed his knee. He left the game late in the second quarter, and as long as he's sidelined, look for D'Ernest Johnson to see No. 3 running back reps, and Tavierre Thomas to handle kick return duties.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Cleared to play vs. BAL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard (neck) is active Week 16 against the Ravens.

Hilliard is back in the mix after being listed as a limited practice participant all week, and while he's healthy and presumably in line to take on kick return duties, his role has been limited almost exclusively to special teams since the return of Kareem Hunt. The second-year back hasn't logged double-digit snaps on offense since Week 9.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard has a neck injury and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The 24-year-old has been a limited practice participant this week after apparently picking up the injury during the Week 15 loss to the Cardinals. Tavierre Thomas would likely take over kick return duties should Hilliard be unable to suit up.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Sees fewer snaps with Hunt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard played just eight snaps on offense in Sunday's 19-16 win over Buffalo.

Hilliard had been the No. 2 running back behind Nick Chubb since the start of the season while Kareem Hunt served an eight-game suspension. Sunday was Hunt's first game back and Hilliard saw a dramatic decrease in his offensive role. He remains a regular on special teams (16 snaps) however, including as a punt and kick returner.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Likely to make way for Hunt return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is expected to drop to No. 3 on the depth chart at running back this week with Kareem Hunt returning from suspension, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Head coach Freddie Kitchens confirmed Hunt "will definitely have a role" when the Browns host the Bills in Week 10. Hilliard has been the primary fill-in for starter Nick Chubb, coming in on third down in some situations. He's scored two touchdowns and been used as a receiver, but his overall body of work has been unremarkable.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Catches four balls in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard caught all four of his targets for 24 yards and added another 10 yards on his lone carry in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Patriots.

Hilliard played a career-high 26 snaps, lining up at wide receiver a few times, and tied his career high in receptions. He's caught six passes over the last two games, as the Browns look at other targets with wide receiver Rashard Higgins possibly not fully over his knee injury. Once Week 10 hits, Hilliard's playing time will be squeezed with the return of Kareem Hunt (suspension), another capable receiving threat.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Notches two receptions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard caught two of three targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 32-28 loss to Seattle. He added 102 yards on two kick returns.

Hilliard nearly took the opening kickoff to the house Sunday, breaking off a 74-yard return. He wasn't quite as dynamic on offense, where he has just one game of at least 20 total yards. Hilliard has two touchdowns in just 12 touches, but is playing behind a bell cow back in Nick Chubb with Kareem Hunt (suspension) set to enter the fold after just two more games. In the meantime, Hilliard and the Browns take on the league's second-ranked defense, the Patriots, in Week 8 following the bye.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: More involved, scores TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard had a combined 54 yards, evenly split with 27 rushing and receiving, caught three of five targets, and scored a rushing touchdown in Sunday's 40-25 win over the Ravens in Week 4.

On the surface, it looks like Browns offensive coordinator Todd Monken followed through on his statement to Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site earlier this week to get Hilliard more involved Week 4. After playing just one offensive snap last week, the second-year back was on the field for 25 plays and had eight total touches. However, five of his six carries and his touchdown came on the Browns' final drive as they were up by two scores late and finished off the victory. This is still a backfield very much dominated by Nick Chubb.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Healthy for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

D'Ernest Johnson filled in as Nick Chubb's backup in Monday's 23-3 win over the Jets, catching three of four targets for 42 yards and adding three carries for eight yards. Hilliard should step back into that role for the Week 3 matchup with the Rams, likely getting most of his playing time in passing situations while also serving as the primary returner on punts and kicks.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Ruled out for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 12, 2019 12:16 PM
Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Not ready for practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

September 8, 2019 03:24 PM
Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Possible concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is being evaluated for a possible concussion, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Prior to his exit from Sunday's game against the Titans, Hilliard turned his lone carry into a four-yard TD and caught one of his two targets for 14 yards. As long as he's on the sideline, D'Ernest Johnson is next up for running back snaps behind starter Nick Chubb.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Top return man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard is expected to return punts and kicks Week 1 against the Titans, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Special teams coach Mike Priefer said fellow running back D'Ernest Johnson may also get some chances behind Hilliard. If the Browns need a big play late in the game, Priefer said he will consider using Jarvis Landry or Odell Beckham Jr.

Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Generates 78 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hilliard carried 12 times for 65 yards and caught two of three targets for 13 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 20-16 preseason win over the Lions.

Hilliard gashed Detroit on the ground to the tune of 5.4 yards per carry, with a long gain of 22 yards. While he did most of his damage on the ground, he got into the end zone via a seven-yard reception in the second quarter. Hilliard is a strong candidate to begin the season as the Browns' top backup running back/change-of-pace option and has acquitted himself nicely during the team's exhibition slate.
