Bengals injuries help Browns

The Browns got some good news when the inactive lists were announced; Bengals running back Cedric Benson and linebacker Keith Rivers won't play today.

No significant players are on the Browns inactive list, unless you want to count tight end Robert Royal or rookie wide receiver Brian Robiskie. But Robiskie has only one catch through 10 games, so he isn't missed. Then again, if Robiskie cannot make the active roster on a 1-9 team it doesn't say much for taking him with the 36th pick in the draft.

The Browns want to play spoilers today. Not many reporters in the press box think they have much of a chance. If the Browns do lose they will fall to 0-5 in the AFC North. That doesn't mean anything in the standings for this year, but it is a reflection on how much they have to improve to be a contender in the future.
