The Cleveland Browns and Atlanta Falcons will be going up against the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions, respectively, without one each of their biggest weapons. The Browns will be without running back Peyton Hillis (who's brought new vim and vigor to the Madden Curse), and the Falcons will have to do their thing without dynamic rookie receiver Julio Jones.
However, each team also got some good news — for the Browns, Joe Haden is active, and for the Falcons, defensive end John Abraham will go. Not so good news for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will take on the Bears in London with a depleted roster — center Jeff Faine, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, and running back LeGarrette Blount will be watching from the sidelines.
Here are all the early inactives — as always, a big hat tip to Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog for the quick work!
