Ronnie Hillman Injury Upate: Broncos RB Not Expected To Play Vs. Seahawks

Denver Broncos rookie running back Ronnie Hillman is expected to miss his second straight preseason game, as a right hamstring injury is likely to keep him from seeing the field, according to an Associated Press report. Hillman injured the hamstring on Tuesday during practice, the same day that guard Chris Kuper broke his forearm and defensive end Jason Hunter tore his triceps muscle.

Hillman missed the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears with the same injury. Missing two games certainly won't help him move ahead of Lance Ball and make him the backup to Willis McGahee, but being third on the depth chart is a bit misleading. Hillman, when healthy, is expected to be a change-of-pace back and a threat out of the backfield to catch passes.

The Broncos drafted Hillman in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of San Diego State.
