Mangini is just resting Hillis

Browns RB Peyton Hillis is expected to play on Sunday, according to coach Eric Mangini who said that he just wanted to rest the hottest name in fantasy football.

Good idea, coach. No use running Hillis ragged with all of that unnecessary practice and stuff. Although, it does lend to some concerns about his durability. Hillis had a career-high 68 attempts for the Broncos in 2008. He has 66 attempts right now. Not to scare anybody here currently soaking in the riches of snagging Hillis for you team, but the bruising back is certainly in unchartered territory.

If you want to be one of those, the glass-is-half-full kind of guys, then just think that he has been well rested over the last two years.

But for this week, he is fine. I say just ride out the fun for as long as it lasts.
