News: Hillman had two carries for eight yards in Sunday's 24-13 loss to the Colts.
Impact: After taking a big chunk out of C.J. Anderson's workload in Week 17, Hillman was nearly invisible against the Colts. Anderson accounted for 24 of Denver's 26 running-back touches, and he played better than his statistics (18 carries for 80 yards, six catches for 29 yards) would seem to suggest. The Broncos have made some questionable decisions with running backs the past couple of years, but Anderson erased any potential uncertainty for 2015. That means Hillman's best-case scenario is to enter OTAs as the clear No. 2 running back, but it's also possible that he'll have to compete with Montee Ball and/or Juwan Thompson for positioning on the depth chart. While he strung together some nice performances prior to missing Weeks 11-16 with a foot injury, Hillman was far less impressive than Anderson.
