Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman hospitalized, should rejoin team soon

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Running back Ronnie Hillman and cornerback Kayvon Webster fell ill after the preseason game and were held back at a Dallas-area hospital overnight.

Both players participated in the pregame conditioning workout that was reserved for the Broncos' front-line players. Neither Hillman or Webster played in the preseason game. Webster had to be aided out of the locker room.

The Broncos did not disclose the nature of the illness, although the team did confirm Hillman and Webster were taken to a Dallas-area hospital for treatment and evaluation.

Both are expected to rejoin the team this weekend.

Fantasy Impact: 

It doesn't sound like this is too serious, but it is worth monitoring over the weekend. Hillman is expected to serve as the primary backup to Montee Ball. C.J. Anderson is the next man up.
