The Giants have had one running back at practice this week and after scratching Da'Rel Scott on Monday, they had an open spot.

Hillis most recently played for the Bucs this pre-season before getting cut.

It was reported Tuesday morning that the Giants will sign running back Peyton Hillis. A six-year veteran, Hillis has had one outstanding season. In 2010, he ran for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Browns. Since then, he's floated to a couple teams and has had multiple injuries that has severely affected his productivity.

If Hillis can find his secret mojo and go back to his Madden '12 cover days, maybe we can have at least one thing to look forward to when watching the Giants on Monday Night against the 1-4 Vikings.
