Browns RB Hillis impresses coach during individual workout

Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis, who has missed six straight games with a hamstring injury, did well enough in an individual workout on Thursday that coach Pat Shurmur said he might be able to participate on a  limited basis in Friday's practice, according to the Plain Dealer.

Shurmur did not venture on a target date for Hillis' return. He has already been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hillis, who ran for nearly 1,200 yards last season, hasn't played since being injured Oct. 16 at Oakland.

Meanwhile, Browns running back Montario Hardesty has recovered from a calf injury and could play this week against Cincinnati after missing three straight games.

Hardesty hasn't played since getting hurt on Oct. 30 in San Francisco.
