ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Running back Peyton Hillis has become the ninth Cleveland Browns player to reach 1,000 yards rushing in a season.

Entering Sunday with 962 yards rushing, Hillis reached the milestone with an 8-yard gain on his fourth carry early in the first quarter of the Browns game at the Buffalo Bills. Jamal Lewis, in 2008, was the last Browns player to hit 1,000.

Jim Brown holds the team record with seven 1,000-yard seasons.

The Browns acquired Hillis in an offseason trade with Denver.
