Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins due to fumbling, according to ESPN.
Hillman fumbled against the Indianapolis Colts in a loss.
He'll be replaced by rookie C.J. Anderson.
“If you follow the game and look around the league, most of your top backs have two or three fumbles," Broncos coach John Fox said. "It’s not anything you like; it’s not anything we’re happy about. I’m sure if you ask him, he’d probably reply the same. But it’s no different than I feel comfortable having (wide receiver Andre Caldwell) be out there catching the ball. (Hillman) is part of our running back corps -- he actually had some very nice runs in the game.’’
Added offensive coordinator Adam Gase: “You just keep working him at practice and probably have a lot of guys going after it, especially on defense … And we’ve got to keep working on it. The way that we’re fumbling, it’s just unacceptable. We’ve got to get this fixed and that’s been a big focus for us again this week. Hopefully we can restart everything; we’ve got a fresh week to get to zero turnovers.”
