Hillman's hamstring steadily improving

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- A certain Denver Broncos quarterback has taken quite a liking to rookie running back Ronnie Hillman.

So much so that Peyton Manning frequently hauls Hillman over to an adjacent field in the middle of practice, just to work on their timing.

Hillman is eager to get up to speed with Manning even if the tailback can't quite go full throttle right now.

The speedy third-round pick has been hobbled for a good portion of camp by a bothersome right hamstring. And what he's quickly discovering is that no matter how fast he is on the field, he can't rush back from this injury -- no matter how badly he wants to.

The Broncos (No. 10 in the AP Pro32) have big plans for Hillman, too.
