FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The Cleveland Browns are looking to get their first win against the Patriots in Gillette Stadium since 1992, and will have some key players return to the field while others are still sidelined.

After ruling out running backs Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton and John Kelly as they remain on the COVID-19 list, and ruling out defensive end Takk McKinley with a groin injury on Friday, the team announced it's inactive players for Sunday's game.

Here is the list of Browns inactives:

  • CB Greedy Williams
  • S Richard LeCounte III
  • LB Tony Fields II
  • DE Takk McKinley
  • WR Ja'Marcus Bradley
  • DT Sheldon Day

Williams was listed as questionable heading into the game with a shoulder injury that had limited him in practice all week.
The Browns activated cornerback M.J. Stewart and linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah from injured reserve Saturday and both were marked as active Sunday heading into the game against the Patriots.

Tight end Harrison Bryant (thigh), defensive ends Jadeveon Clowney (ankle, knee) and Myles Garrett (foot), defensive tackle Malik Jackson (knee), wide receivers Jarvis Landry (knee) and Donovan Peoples-Jones (personal), center JC Tretter (knee) and quarterback Baker Mayfield (shoulder, foot) all appeared on the injury report during the week but will play Sunday.

After the Browns released defensive tackle Andrew Billings Saturday, rookie Tommy Togiai was listed as active for the first time all season.

Baker Mayfield will serve at the Game Captain Sunday.

The Patriots had 14 players listed on the week's injury report and ruled out wide receiver Gunner Olszewski and running back Damien Harris Saturday. New England also placed linebacker Jamie Collins on injured reserve while activating tackle Trent Brown from IR Saturday ahead of the game.

Here are the Patriots inactives:

  • CB Shaun Wade
  • DE Ronnie Perkins
  • TE Jonnu Smith
  • G Yasir Durant
  • RB Damien Harris
  • QB Jarrett Stidham
  • WR Gunner Olszewski
