Ronnie Hillman RB DEN 1 Day

Hillman (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, the Denver Post reports.

After practicing fully all week, Hillman is poised to rejoin the Broncos' backfield mix Sunday, and in his anticipated return to action, look for him to work in a complementary role behind C.J. Anderson.

Hillman (foot) was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday, the Broncos' official site reports.

The session marked the first time that Hillman -- who practiced in a limited fashion last week -- has had full practice participation since he sprained his foot on Nov. 9. "He's obviously further ahead than he was this time a week ago," coach John Fox said Wednesday, as the Broncos prepare for Sunday's home game against the Raiders. "The fact that we're on grass, not on [artificial] turf, (there are) a lot of variables, but I like what I see." While Hillman may finally return to the Broncos' backfield mix this weekend, it's hard to imagine him immediately supplanting C.J. Anderson as the team's lead back.

Hillman (foot) said Saturday that he has still not been told whether or not he will play Monday against the Bengals, the Denver Post reports. "I was better than I was," Hillman man. "Getting better. Progressing. I'm jus waiting for them to say, 'You're up this week.' Whenever that happens, it happens. Playoffs, next week, I don't know."

Hillman has been absent since suffering the injury in Week 10, and even if he is cleared to play, C.J. Anderson figures to continue getting a majority of the touches out of the backfield, which makes Hillman a relatively weak fantasy option versus what he was before the injury.
