The Green Bay Packers are scheduled to meet with unrestricted free-agent RB Peyton Hillis (Chiefs).
Huddle Up: This news casts a bit of doubt on the Steven Jackson-to-Green Bay rumors as the Pack were said to the front-runners to land the services of the former Ram. Hillis, meanwhile, has had one shining season (2010 in Cleveland) flanked by others filled with injuries, a lack of production and question marks.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 25, and should be available to play Week 8.
Huddle Up: Hillis owners would be best served to wait and see how he fits into the game plan for the Chiefs. Hillis wasn't really a fantasy factor before the injury so he would only be a desperation play at this point.

Kansas City Chiefs DE Glenn Dorsey (calf), RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) and TE Steve Maneri (ankle) were limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 24.
Huddle Up: Hillis continues his return from injury, but might not see the field much if Jamaal Charles is playing well. He could spell Charles more often, though. This could actually help Charles; if he is fresher throughout the day, he could see bigger runs.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) is making some practice despite not practicing Wednesday, Oct. 11. There is a chance that Hillis could return in Week 8 after the team's bye week.
Huddle Up: Hillis will miss his third straight game Sunday, but he's obviously someone to keep an eye on in the second half of the season with the run-first mentality in K.C.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) is unlikely to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.
Huddle Up: The high-ankle sprain Hillis suffered against the Saints in Week 3 has proven to be problematic as he hasn't played since. He didn't do much before the injury with 126 total yards and no TDs on 26 touches but he still belongs on fantasy rosters in all leagues when healthy.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Jamaal Charles is playing so well, we aren't sure this matters. Shaun Draughn will likely back him up again this weekend if Hillis can't go, and he has some upside if he can get into the game. At this point, Hillis might be droppable unless you are handcuffing Charles.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 28, and is listed as doubtful for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hillis has been utterly ineffective for the Chiefs this season, so this could be a blessing in disguise. Shaun Draughn gets a chance to complement Charles, and he has looked pretty good in limited duty thus far this season.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis did not practice Thursday, Sept. 27.
Huddle Up: All signs point to Hillis sitting out this week's game, leaving the KC backfield workload to Jamaal Charles with a smattering of Shaun Draughn mixed in.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis was still in his walking boot Wednesday, Sept. 26, and was not able to practice.
Huddle Up: It's not looking good for a Hillis return this week. With Hillis out Jamaal Charles will see the bulk of the carries, with a little Shaun Draughn mixed in as well.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Hillis suffered an ankle sprain Sunday in New Orleans, clearing the way for Jamaal Charles to run wild (288 total yards) in a win over the Saints. Charles, though, finished with 39 touches in the contest, and K.C. would prefer not to pile as much on the speed-oriented RB's plate every week. So if Hillis can't go Sunday against the Chargers, look for Shaun Draughn, who's averaged 8 touches per outing over the first 3 games, to get an even bigger piece of the workload in Week 4.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis will not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Hillis suffered an ankle injury last week, opening the door for Jamaal Charles to top 30 carries and go well over 200 yards. Last we saw Hillis he was in a walking boot, which is bad news for his prospects for playing this week against the Chargers--but good news if you're a Charles owner not interested in sharing the workload.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel said RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) is wearing a walking boot after suffering an ankle injury in Week 3. He hopes that Hillis will be able to play Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hillis has been a fantasy disappointment so far with 93 yards on 21 carries and 5 catches for 33 yards through 3 games as part of a 3-RB rotation with Jamaal Charles and Shaun Draughn. He has yet to score a TD with his new club and now has the injury to deal with. Hold off on counting on Hillis until the signs turn more positive.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) and WR Dexter McCluster (shoulder) both left in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 3 game after suffering injuries and did not return.
Huddle Up: While teammate Jamaal Charles was blowing up the Saints' defense and the stat sheet, Hillis carried 3 times for 11 yards, while McCluster had 33 yards on 4 touches. McCluster was dealing with a shoulder issue entering the game.
