BALTIMORE — Rookie receiver Travis Benjamin will replace Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) in the starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Ravens.
Benjamin started in a three-receiver set in Week 2 against Cincinnati and scored his first NFL touchdown Sunday against Buffalo on a 22-yard post-corner route. He has three catches for 56 yards (18.7 average) and three carries for 50 yards.
Massaquoi was inactive after pulling the hamstring Sunday against the Bills.
Free safety Eric Hagg was inactive for the second straight game after starting the first two. He was again replaced by Usama Young in the starting lineup. Hagg is healthy, but wasn’t productive, according to the coaches.
Running back Brandon Jackson was a healthy scratch for the third straight week.
The other inactives: tight end Alex Smith (concussion), rookie linebacker James-Michael Johnson (ribs/oblique), quarterback Thaddeus Lewis and rookie offensive lineman Ryan Miller.
The Browns have lost 11 straight inside the AFC North.
The Browns (0-3) started 0-4 in 1999 and 2009.
The Ravens have won nine straight inside the division. They have won 12 straight regular-season games at home and 20 of 21.
The Ravens have painted “Art” decals on both sidelines in honor of former Browns and Ravens owner Art Modell, who died earlier this month.
The regular officials will work the game after an agreement was reached Wednesday night between the NFL and the referees union.
