Hillis, Vilma, Foster lead list of early inactives

Shutdown Corner

The three marquee injuries for the 10:00 a.m. PT/1:00 p.m. ET games are Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis, who's been sent home with strep throws. If you have Montario Hardesty on your fantasy team, now's the time to roll. Similarly in Houston, you'll want to go with running back Ben Tate over Arian Foster, who will be off the field with that balky hamstring. Adding to Tate's possible effectiveness is the fact that middle linebacker Jonathan Vilma is out (knee), and cornerback Tracy Porter is out as well. The Saints will want to get Jabari Greer all over Andre Johnson, because Patrick Robinson is still learning on the go, and it's very obvious.

Here are all the early inactives; as always, a huge hat tip to our good buddy Brian McIntyre at Mac's Football Blog.
