When the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to take on the Cleveland Browns this weekend, the Browns will be without running back Peyton Hillis and safety T.J. Ward, who have both already been declared out for this weeks game. Hillis has dealt with injuries all season long and recently re-aggravated a hamstring injury. Hillis has missed quite a few games this season dealing with the injury and hasn't played since October 16th. In last year's match up with the Browns Hillis was limited on the ground, rushing for just 48 yards on 21 attempts, but he did have 95 receiving yards that included a 47-yard touchdown. The Browns have been snake bitten at the running back position, so they will likely continue to throw the football.
Safety T.J. Ward will also be out again, having missed time since November 6th when he injured his foot. Ward has been a solid run stuffing safety for the Browns. In last year's match up, Ward had 5 tackles and intercepted David Garrard two times.
