Coach Romeo Crennel suggested that Peyton Hillis' effectiveness Sunday was a reason for Jamaal Charles' light workload.
Hillis did look spry in his first game back from an ankle injury, but he saw just four carries. We're beginning to wonder if Crennel has any idea what is going on offensively. "We were rotating our backs in there. Hillis was back and he was able to get some carries. He was somewhat effective. When a guy's effective, we kind of stay with him a little bit," Crennel said. Expect a much larger dose of Charles against the Chargers Thursday, with Hillis staying in a change-of-pace role.
