Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis is expected to play in Thursday night's AFC North matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers despite being listed as questionable with a hip injury, according to a league source.
Hillis missed one series in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens and was limited in practice this week.
As Browns coach Pat Shurmur alluded to Tuesday, quarterback Colt McCoy also will play Thursday after suffering a sprained right knee against the Ravens. McCoy missed only one play Sunday and has done everything he normally would during practice this week.
Despite reports McCoy has been limping during practices this week, the source indicated the quarterback is no more banged up than the rest of the team. He's listed as probable on the injury report.
Linebacker Chris Gocong (hip), running back Montario Hardesty (calf) and defensive end Jayme Mitchell (ankle) were listed as probable.
