Chiefs expect Peyton Hillis to make an impact next week

According to ProFootballWeekly.com, Kansas Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis finally healthy and ready to make an impact this season.

“The Chiefs finally feel like Peyton Hillis is ready to contribute the way they imagined when they signed him prior to the season. A high ankle sprain has kept him out recently, and when they return from the bye next week they expect him to help shoulder some of the running load, which had become too Jamaal Charles-dependent some weeks,” wrote ProFootballWeekly.com.

Getting Hillis back should help the Chiefs, but they won’t improve much mainly because of how bad their defense has looked.
