Browns pregame update: Seneca Wallace active, No. 2 QB

CLEVELAND – The Browns and Jets are about to square off in one of the biggest Browns games in recent memories. Kickoff is at 1 o’clock.

The Browns have won two straight, beating New Orleans 30-17 and New England 34-14. The Jets are 6-2, and a third straight upset win by the Browns would lift them to 4-5.

Quarterback Seneca Wallace will be active for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain Oct. 10. He’ll be the backup to Colt McCoy, who’s making his fourth straight start. Brett Ratliff will be the third quarterback, and Jake Delhomme (ankle) is inactive after returning to practice Thursday.

Linebacker Marcus Benard, who fainted Thursday in the locker room, is active and expected to play. He thanked fans for their support in a pregame Tweet.

Inactive for the Browns: receivers Carlton Mitchell and Demetrius Williams, offensive lineman Steve Vallos, defensive linemen Brian Sanford and Jayme Mitchell and tight end Alex Smith.

Jets receiver Braylon Edwards, a former Brown, just walked onto the field with the rest of the team. He walked slowly down the sideline.
