Colts safety Sergio Brown (hand), cornerback Josh Gordy (groin), wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) and linebacker Robert Mathis (not injury related) were all cleared to play Week 14 at Cincinnati. All four players were listed as probable.
It appeared Wednesday that Colts cornerback Greg Toler was on the verge of returning when he practiced on a limited basis after a seven-week absence with a groin injury. But he did not participate in the Thursday session. His status will become clearer when the team releases its Friday injury report.
Browns tight end Jordan Cameron snapped out of his recent slump with a nine-catch, 121-yard, one-touchdown game against the Patriots in Week 14. It was his first game with double-digit Fantasy points (standard scoring) since Week 7, and his second 100-yard game of the season.
Linebacker Craig Robertson was inactive the last two games with a knee injury, but he leads a short list of Browns listed as questionable for Sunday at New England and could make his return. The other questionables are fellow linebacker Tank Carder (shoulder) and tight end MarQueis Gray (hamstring).
Many bit players had a role in the dramatic loss for the Browns at New England on Sunday. Among them were running backs Fozzy Whittaker and Chris Ogbonnaya, both of whom caught three passes and rushed four times. The former managed 18 yards receiving and 6 yards rushing. The latter had 25 yards through the air and 8 on the ground.
Browns tackle Joe Thomas (back) and linebacker D'Qwell Jackson (ankle) made rare appearances on the injury report Wednesday. Both were limited in practice, but there has been no indication that either will be threatened with inactivity Sunday against Chicago.
