Browns' Hillis officially out

Peyton Hillis' horrible week came to a merciful end when the Cleveland Browns downgraded him to out on Saturday.

Hillis suffered a re-aggravation of his hamstring injury in Friday's practice, but that appeared to be the least of his problems, as it was reported that Hillis' teammates held an intervention-style meeting with him to help him regain his focus on football and not worry so much about his contract situation.

Hillis' hamstring is expected to keep him out at least a couple of weeks in what is quickly become a lost season for the running back who emerged as enough of a feel good story last year that he graced the cover of Madden '12 this year.
