New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said running back Peyton Hillis will be out "for a while" due to an ankle injury.
Hillis was injured during practice on Tuesday.
Just this week, Hillis figured to be in line for the team’s No. 2 slot after the team placed David Wilson on injured reserve because of a neck injury.

Rashad Jennings is the team’s starter and rookie Andre Williams figures to get more carries in the team’s next preseason game Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“I don't know (when he will be back),” Coughlin said, according to the New York Daily News. “Looks like it'll be awhile."
Hillis rushed for 36 yards on seven carries in the team’s preseason-opening 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
