Running back is thin, Quinn is in

The inactives for the game against the Vikings today were just announced. Running back Jerome Harrison is on the list with a knee injury and running back Cedric Peerman is on it with a thigh injury. It means Jamal Lewis and rookie James Davis are the only running backs in uniform for the Browns. Fullback Lawrence Vickers is playing, but he is a short yardage runner and blocker.

The other inactives: Defensive backs Marquis Floyd and DeAngelo Smith, guard Rex Hadnot, tight end Martin Rucker and linebacker Leon Williams.

Rookie center Alex Mack is starting over veteran Hank Fraley. Mack is 6-4, 311 pounds. Fraley is 6-3, 310. Mack is stronger, but the rookie will be tested by Vikings defensive tackles Kevin Williams and Pat Williams.

This item is at the bottom of this blog because it isn't really news. The Browns made it official around noon; Brady Quinn is the starting quarterback.
