Giants rule out Peyton Hillis Week 10
by Chris Cwik |

The Giants have ruled out running back Peyton Hillis Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Andre Williams has company in Peyton Hillis
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For the first time since Rashad Jennings went down with a knee injury in Week 5, Giants running back Andre Williams had real competition for touches Week 9 against Indianapolis. Peyton Hillis played almost the same number of snaps and actually had more total yards, gaining 20 on four carries and 50 on five catches.

Now obviously, the Giants were down big in this game from pretty much the outset. They were forced to throw the ball and, at least judging by the numbers, have never regarded Williams as much of a pass catcher. Maybe if the game had unfolded differently, Williams would have once again kept Hillis out of the box score.

But there's another issue at play here. Williams got three times as many carries as Hillis and gained only 22 yards with them, averaging 1.8 per carry. He has averaged just 2.9 yards per carry since Jennings went down and is averaging 3.0 for the season.

That's not good, and by now, the Giants have to realize it's making their offense one-dimensional. Jennings may well return Week 10 at Seattle, but if he doesn't, Williams may be looking at more of a timeshare.

Giants still plan committee approach at running back
by Larry Hartstein |

Despite the likely loss of David Wilson to a neck injury, Giants coach Tom Couglin indicated he'll use a running back-by-committee approach. Rashad Jennings is the starter, with rookie Andre Williams, veteran Peyton Hills and Michael Cox and Kendall Gaskins also in the mix.

"I think we have some talented guys at that spot," Coughlin told The Star-Ledger on Thursday. "I think Rashad has done well. I think the young kid (Williams) has come along the more we have given him to do. Michael Cox has had his spots.

"Gaskins did some pretty good things today. We’ll let this thing play out. It’ll be some kind of combination of people involved. They’ll have plenty of opportunities in the preseason to show us what they can do and where they fit."

Muscle strain sidelines Peyton Hillis
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Giants running back Peyton Hillis has missed some practice time with a low-grade muscle strain, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. He hopes to be ready for minicamp next week. 

"I think I did it around the first day of practice that we were out on the field and I played with it for a week and a half and strained it a little more this past Thursday," he said. "But I've been getting better, been getting healthy."

Hillis is competing for playing time in camp this summer with a number of other running backs including assumed starter Rashad Jennings, rookie Andre Williams and speedster David Wilson.
