Ronnie Hillman (foot) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Hillman's role is uncertain. C.J. Anderson is locked in as Denver's feature runner, but Hillman could cut into change-up back Juwan Thompson's usage.
Dec 26 - 2:59 PM

Ronnie Hillman (foot) practiced in full Wednesday for the first time since his Week 10 injury.

Hillman practiced on a limited basis last week, but was ruled inactive on Monday night against the Bengals. The Broncos often make their injured players practice for two weeks before activating them. So we'd consider Hillman on track to play against the Raiders in Week 17, serving as one of C.J. Anderson's backups. It's hard to see Hillman stealing anything more than 3-5 touches from Anderson, who has played at an extremely high level in his six starts.
Dec 24 - 6:22 PM

Ronnie Hillman (foot) is inactive for Week 16 against the Bengals.

Hillman was listed as questionable and a game-time decision. He should be back for Week 17 and the Broncos' playoff run as a change-up to C.J. Anderson.
Dec 22 - 7:12 PM

The Denver Post suggests the artificial turf at Cincinnati's Paul Brown Stadium makes it less likely Ronnie Hillman (questionable, foot) plays this week.

Hillman is "close" to returning, but the Broncos won't rush him back after doing so with Montee Ball (groin) and ultimately losing him for the season. "I'm better than I was," Hillman said. "Getting better. Progressing. I'm just waiting for them to say, 'You're up this week.' Whenever that happens, it happens. Playoffs, next week, I don't know." Look for Juwan Thompson to spend one more week as C.J. Anderson's primary breather back.

Ronnie Hillman (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Hillman remains day to day. Juwan Thompson (hip, knee) sat out Thursday's practice, leaving C.J. Anderson's Week 16 backup up in the air.
Dec 18 - 5:47 PM

The Broncos hope to have Ronnie Hillman (foot) back "if not this week at Cincinnati then in the season finale."

The Broncos could put Hillman to use as a complement to C.J. Anderson, who's averaged an unruly 27.25 carries per game over the past month. Shifty and quick, Hillman would make more sense as a true change-of-pace than Juwan Thompson, who is a big back like Anderson. Even if Hillman plays Monday night at Cincinnati, it would be a surprise if he handled more than 7-9 touches.

Ronnie Hillman (foot) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game at San Diego.

Hillman got back in practice this week and could be back for Week 16. He'll compete with Juwan Thompson for carries behind C.J. Anderson.
Dec 14 - 2:50 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport would be shocked if Ronnie Hillman (foot) plays in Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Hillman resumed practicing this week, giving him a shot to return in Week 16. C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson are locked and loaded as Denver's top-two backs in San Diego Sunday.
Dec 14 - 10:36 AM

Ronnie Hillman (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Hillman practiced on a limited basis all week. He isn't a threat to C.J. Anderson's lead back job, but could replace Juwan Thompson as the change of pace.
Dec 12 - 3:41 PM

Ronnie Hillman (foot) has resumed practicing.

Hillman got in limited sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. It's unclear if he'll be ready for Sunday's game against the Chargers, but a Week 16 return is more likely. Hillman is zero threat to C.J. Anderson's No. 1 status, and may even slide in behind Juwan Thompson on the depth chart. He's off the radar in 12-14 team re-draft leagues.
Dec 11 - 2:35 PM

Ronnie Hillman (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

As expected. Hillman could miss up to another month. With Montee Ball (groin) also out, C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson will handle backfield duties Sunday.
Nov 19 - 1:52 PM

The Denver Post expects Ronnie Hillman (foot) to miss Week 12.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that Hillman could miss another month, but it sounds like the Broncos are taking things week-to-week with their third-year back. With Hillman's timeline entirely unclear, he's not a must hold in 12-14 team leagues with the fantasy playoffs just around the corner.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ronnie Hillman's foot injury could cost him up to six weeks.

Schefter says the timetable on Hillman is 2-6 weeks, as the foot injury has proved more severe than initially believed. Per ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Broncos will continue to "ride the hot hand," with C.J. Anderson starting against the Rams, but Montee Ball and Juwan Thompson both mixing into the backfield.
Nov 16 - 11:32 AM

Ronnie Hillman (foot) is listed as out for Week 11.

Remember when John Fox called Hillman "day to day?" We don't, either. With Hillman sidelined for what's expected to be at least two weeks, C.J. Anderson, Montee Ball, and to a lesser extent Juwan Thompson will handle the load.
