News: Hillman was hospitalized due to an illness following Thursday's preseason game against the Cowboys, the Denver Post reports. Impact: Hillman and cornerback Kayvon Webster both left the stadium to go to a Dallas-area hospital, but only Webster stayed overnight. Expected to rejoin the team soon, Hillman will likely be fine for next Sunday's opener against the Colts. Should Hillman suffer any kind of setback, some combination of C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson will fill in as Montee Ball's top backup.(RotoWire, )

News: Cornerback Kayvon Webster and Hillman didn't return with the Denver Broncos from their preseason finale in Dallas on Thursday night after falling ill.

News: Hillman did not play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Cowboys. Impact: Not that there was any doubt, but Hillman's absence from Thursday's game essentially confirms that he'll enter the season as Montee Ball's top backup. However, the undersized Hillman doesn't profile as a three-down workhorse, so he'd likely split touches with C.J. Anderson and/or Juwan Thompson in the event of an injury to Ball.(RotoWire, )

News: Working as the No. 2 running back, Hillman had 24 yards on seven carries and five yards on one reception in Saturday's preseason game as the Texans. Impact: With Montee Ball (appendix) making his preseason debut, Hillman fell into the backup role that he figures to occupy at the beginning of the season. While C.J. Anderson also got some first-team work, Hillman remains the favorite to serve as Ball's top backup. UDFA Juwan Thompson could also be a factor in the event of a Ball injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Hillman started Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers and finished with four carries for 19 rushing yards and one catch on two targets for six receiving yards. Impact: Hillman got the start in place of Montee Ball, who is still sidelined after undergoing an emergency appendectomy last week. C.J. Anderson, who is competing with Hillman for the backup job, ran for a touchdown, although his 3.2 YPC average fell well short of Hillman's 4.8 on Sunday. Neither back separated himself from the other, so Hillman remains the front-runner for the No. 2 spot through two preseason games.(RotoWire, )
