The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns have released their inactive players lists for today’s game.

Here are the players who won’t suit up for the Bengals:

  • TE Hayden Hurst
  • RB Chris Evans
  • OL D’Ante Smith
  • OL Jackson Carman
  • DE Jeff Gunter

Hurst (calf) was the only player declared out with injury. Evans joins the usual list of healthy scratches a week after his first touchdown of the season. The second-year player has been supplanted by fellow running back Trayveon Williams as the team’s kickoff returner and third-string running back behind Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine.

Speaking of Mixon, he’s officially active for the first time since Week 11, when he suffered a concussion.

Here are the inactives for the Browns.

  • QB Kellen Mond
  • WR Jaelon Darden
  • LB Reggie Ragland
  • CB Greedy Williams
  • DE Chase Winovich
  • OL Chris Hubbard
  • DT Tommy Togiai

Winovich (knee) is the lone player who was listed on Cleveland’s injury report. The fourth-year edge rusher was limited on Friday after not practicing Thursday.

Amari Cooper was listed as questionable after not practicing Friday with a hip injury, but the Browns’ No. 1 receiver will suit up. In Week 8 against the Bengals, Cooper racked up 131 receiving yards and a touchdown on five receptions.
