Browns RBs Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty are active for Sunday's game at Cincinnati after missing multiple games with injuries.

Hillis has missed the last five games with a hamstring injury, while Hardesty has missed the last three games with a calf injury. Hillis is listed as the Browns' first-string tailback, while Hardesty is the second-string tailback. 

The Browns' inactives are starters SS T.J. Ward and FB Owen Marecic and reserves DE Jayme Mitchell, OL Steve Vallos, OL Oniel Cousins, LB Quinton Spears and QB Thaddeus Lewis.

The way we see it

The return of Hillis and Hardesty strengthens a Browns running game that already had received a major boost from third-string RB Chris Ogbonnaya, who has played very well of late.
