New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis (ankle, foot) will be out for a while because of ankle and foot injuries, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.
Huddle Up: Rough news for the veteran back a day after it was revealed that he was running second behind stater Rashad Jennings on the depth chart. In the meantime, this presents a golden opportunity for good-looking rookie Andre Williams.

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis has moved up to the No. 2 RB on the team's depth chart with RB Andre Williams as the No. 3 RB.
Huddle Up: Between the arrival of free-agent Rashad Jennings, the drafting of Williams and David Wilson's tough tale, Hillis has sort of been lost in the shuffle. Williams (7-48, TD) and Hillis (7-36) were the G-Men's best-looking RBs in Sunday's HOF Game, but the majority of fantasy experts and GMs are casting their lots with the fourth-round pick. We'll see how the upcoming exhibition contests shake out.

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis handled the bulk of the repetitions with the second-team offense Thursday, July 31. RB Andre Williams continued to receive most of the goal line carries.
Huddle Up: Williams as the goal line guy is intriguing, especially in leagues with a TD-heavy scoring system. And with David Wilson unlikely to return, looks like Hillis is the complement to Rashad Jennings--probably good fantasy news for Jennings.

New York Giants RB Andre Williams could unseat RB Peyton Hillis as the power back by the start of the year and become a part of a three-man rotation with RB Rashad Jennings and RB David Wilson, according to Giants.com writers John Schmeelk and Dan Salomone.
Huddle Up: Jennings projects to be the lead dog, and who knows whether or not Wilson can get healthy and/or hang on to the football. But the fact that this is shaping up to be a three-back RBBC is bad news fantasy-wise.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said RB Peyton Hillis has missed a few organized team activities because of a muscle strain. Hillis said he hopes to be able to participate in the mandatory minicamp next week.
Huddle Up: Unfortunately, injury issues and Hillis haven't been strangers of late, and the veteran RB could find touches hard to come by in N.Y. if David Wilson regains his health.
