The Cleveland Browns are clinging to rather slim hopes of reaching the NFL playoffs this season as they could still finish with a 9-7 record, but the team won't be helping those chances if they drop this week's divisional game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Browns could have both of their running backs for the first time in a long time this weekend, though, which would certainly help their chances.
Incumbent starter Peyton Hillis is probable after practicing in full all week despite a hamstring injury. Hillis played last weekend and is expected to get the start this week if he's able to avoid any setbacks until Sunday.
Hillis's backup, Montario Hardesty, might also be ready to return to the field this weekend. Hardesty didn't practice on Wednesday, but was able to go through limited practices on Thursday and Friday, leading to his being listed as questionable on the final injury report of the week.
Linebacker Quinton Spears and defensive back T.J. Ward are both definitely out this week due to injury.
