Browns RB Peyton Hillis (hamstring) was slated to practice on Wednesday, head coach Pat Shurmur said, according to multiple media outlets.

Hillis missed the Week Seven win vs. Seattle with the injury. Shurmur indicated Wednesday that Hillis, who has rushed for 211 yards on 60 carries in 2011 in a campaign marked by an illness and the hamstring injury, is still the Browns' starting tailback. Backup Montario Hardesty rushed 95 yards on 33 carries last week.

Another Browns starter, OLB Scott Fujita, will also return to practice on Wednesday, Shurmur said, according to multiple reports. Fujita missed Week Seven with a concussion.

While Hillis and Fujita are back for the Browns, WR Mohamed Massaquoi and TE Benjamin Watson were to miss practice Wednesday with concussions, Shurmur reportedly said.

The way we see it

The return of Hillis is a boost to a Browns offense that's short on speed and perhaps best when it can play a physical, grind-it-out game. Massaquoi and Watson are two of the passing game's bigger threats, but the Browns do have solid depth at tight end and wideout.
