RB Hillis, WR Johnson out of Browns-Texans game
Houston (AP) -- Beleaguered Browns running back Peyton Hillis is inactive for Cleveland's game in Houston on Sunday.
Hillis aggravated his left hamstring during a practice late in the week, the latest twist in his stormy season. The team's leading rusher last season, Hillis has missed the last three games.
Running back Montario Hardesty (calf), linebacker Auston English (knee) and cornerback Dimitri Patterson (knee) are also inactive for Cleveland. Chris Ogbonnaya, signed off the Texans' practice squad last month, is Cleveland's starting running back.
Texans' star Andre Johnson is inactive for Houston after aggravating his right hamstring in a workout on Monday. Johnson misses his fifth straight game.
Safety Danieal Manning (left leg) is also inactive for Houston.
