EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Four wide receivers are inactive, two for each team, in Cleveland’s game at the New York Giants.

Mohamed Massaquoi and rookie Travis Benjamin are sidelined for the Browns on Sunday with hamstring problems. The Giants are missing Hakeem Nicks (left foot, knee) and Ramses Barden (concussion). Cleveland also is without backup running back Brandon Jackson and tight end Alex Smith, and cornerback Joe Haden is serving the final game of his suspension.

New York is just as banged up, minus starters Nicks, tackle David Diehl (right knee), safety Kenny Philips (right knee) and defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (quadriceps).

Giants linebacker Michael Boley and safety Antrel Rolle, who both missed practice time this week, are active.
