Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis must have passed his pre-game inspection because the bruising running back will be active for the Browns today. Hillis has been out the past five weeks with a hamstring injury, but is ready to help carry the load today for the Browns.
For Cincinnati, the inactive list is also missing an offensive playmaker as rookie wide receiver A.J. Green is expected back on the field in a starting role today for the Bengals. Green injured his knee against the Pittsburgh Steelers which kept him out of last week's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Browns inactive players as reported by Cleveland:
#Browns inactives for today's game: QB T. Lewis, DB T. Ward, FB O. Marecic, OL S. Vallos & O. Cousins, LB Q. Spears and DL J. Mitchell.
Bengals inactive players as reported by Cincinnati:
#Bengals inactives: DE C. Dunlap; TE D. Lee; G C. Boling; S R. Sands; WR R. Whalen; LB D. Moch; T A. Collins
