The Cleveland Browns have named the following players inactive for today's game against the New York Giants: QB Thaddeus Lewis, RB Brandon Jackson, WR Mohamed Massaquoi, WR Travis Benjamin, TE Alex Smith, OL Ryan Miller, and S Tashaun Gipson.
Even though Jackson has been inactive the past few games, with Massaquoi and Benjamin out, I thought he might be active. Instead, the Browns decided to keep LB Tank Carder active for his play on special teams.
S Eric Hagg is active for the first time in three weeks and should see some rotational time with S Usama Young. LB James-Michael Johnson is active for the first time this season after suffering rib and oblique injuries in the preseason.
