BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns running back Peyton Hillis has re-injured left hamstring in practice, making his return after missing two games unlikely.

Hillis pulled up following a running play in practice on Friday. He fired the ball to the ground and then flung his helmet in frustration before being escorted back to the team's facility by a trainer. Hillis only returned to practice Thursday for the first time since last week.

The Browns (3-4) had hoped he would be back for this Sunday's game at Houston, but it appears he will have to sit it out.

Coach Pat Shurmur will have an update following practice.

Hillis' second season in Cleveland has been a disaster. He has been involved in a contract squabble with the club and missed a game earlier this season with strep throat.
