Browns RB Peyton Hillis (thigh) was limited in practice on Thursday, according to the practice report issued by the team. 

Hillis, 24, has emerged as the Browns' featured back in the first four weeks of the season, rushing for 323 yards and four TDs on 66 carries and catching 16 passes for 94 yards and no TDs. He was not on the injury report Wednesday. 

Backup Jerome Harrison, who missed Week Three with a thigh injury but played in Week Four without getting a carry, practiced fully the past two days. 

The way we see it

The subject of Hillis' injury and status figures to be brought up at coach Eric Mangini's Friday press conference, so stay tuned. ESPN's Adam Schefter wrote on Twitter Thursday night that the injury was a "strain" that was "not considered serious" and that Hillis would be "(good) by Sunday." 

If Hillis were limited in any way, Harrison, who was the first-string back to begin the season, would likely be next in line for work, with second-year RB James Davis' role perhaps expanding, too.
