Bucs RB Peyton Hillis takes bad hit to knee, limps off field. After taking two big collisions in his first few carries on the night, the third one to Peyton Hillis’ knee knocked him out of the game.

The crowd was really crushed when they saw Hillis limping to the sideline after the running play that got him hurt. His carries had all been productive, and the hopes of having Martin, Leonard and Hillis around for running back depth seemed gone.

A few tweets are saying the knee is only bruised, but some tweets are saying it is a season (career) ender for Hillis. Let’s wait for official team news on this one before we write him off! This guy is worth having on the team, so if you believe in prayer, you may want to join Gerald McCoy and Adam Hayward in praying for Hillis recovery!

We here at BlogTalkFootball.com are hoping for a complete recovery for Hillis!

No major alarms on Bucs RB Peyton Hillis after a scare tonight when he took a shot to the leg. Belief is it’s just a bruise.
