Hillis missed one series in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens and was limited in practice this week.

As Browns coach Pat Shurmur alluded to Tuesday, quarterback Colt McCoy also will play Thursday after suffering a sprained right knee against the Ravens. McCoy missed only one play Sunday and has done everything he normally would during practice this week.

Despite reports McCoy has been limping during practices this week, the source indicated the quarterback is no more banged up than the rest of the team. He's listed as probable on the injury report.

Right tackle Tony Pashos (ankle) and safety Mike Adams (shoulder), both of whom are questionable, will play despite their injuries.

Linebacker Chris Gocong (hip), running back Montario Hardesty (calf) and defensive end Jayme Mitchell (ankle) were listed as probable.

Defensive back T.J. Ward (foot) and linebacker Quinton Spears (hamstring) were ruled out Monday.
