The St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns announced their inactives lists moments ago. Both teams have a sizable contingent of injured players making up their lists this week. Among the names included on the lists are Peyton Hillis for the Browns and Danario Alexander for the Rams.
The Rams inactives are: Alexander, Brian Kehl, Lance Kendricks, Rod Hood, Josh Hull, Jerious Norwood and Jason Smith. Hood is the only one on that list who is healthy.
The Browns inactives are: QB Thaddeus Lewis, RB Montario Hardesty, RB Peyton Hillis, WR Mohamed Massaquoi, C Steve Vallos, CB Dimitri Patterson, S T.J. Ward.
Former Ram Chris Ogbonnaya will start at running back for the Browns as expected.
Tony Wragge will start in place of Jason Brown for the Rams at center.
St. Louis has a familiar face returning today. Wide receiver Mark Clayton makes his season debut, after being activated off the PUP list this week. Expect to see a healthy does of Clayton and Brandon Lloyd on the outside with Austin Pettis working in the slot. Given Bradford's propensity for throwing to his slot man and the 40 MPH winds, it could be a big day for Pettis.
