Hillis expected to start for Broncos

Forget about Denver having running back Selvin Young today. He will be deactivated due to a groin injury, meaning that Broncos running back Peyton Hillis — the seventh-round pick from Arkansas — is expected to start for Denver against the Falcons on Sunday.

Who would have thought that on Nov. 16, the only rookie running back from Arkansas starting today would not be Darren McFadden or Felix Jones, but Hillis, the converted fullback.
