Peyton Hillis, Montario Hardesty Active For Cleveland

In a surprise turn of events, the Cleveland Browns have announced all three of their running backs — Peyton Hillis, Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya — are active for the team's Week 12 game against the division rival Cincinnati Bengals.

Hillis hasn't played in a game in five weeks and Hardesty has missed every game since Oct. 30. The Browns have yet to announce a starter, but their team site said all are expected to play.

"Most of the run game that we would get ready to play the Bengals would be a run game that could involve Peyton, as well as Montario, as well Chris Ogbonnaya, so it really wasn't that big of a deal," Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Friday. "The biggest challenge for a guy coming back from injury is getting the reps in practice and the details of what's going on as it matches with what the Bengals do."  

Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly. This could be a huge boon to owners who are reeling from Fred Jackson's injury.
