Wallace backing up McCoy for Browns

Seneca Wallace is active for the first time since Oct. 10 and

will be Cleveland rookie quarterback Colt McCoy’s backup against

the New York Jets.

Wallace has been sidelined with a high ankle sprain suffered in

the first half last month against the Atlanta Falcons. He was

filling in for starter Jake Delhomme, who remains sidelined with an

ankle sprain. Both QBs returned to practice this week, but McCoy

will make his fourth straight start.

Also, Browns linebacker Marcus Benard is expected to play. He

fainted in the locker room on Thursday and was taken to a hospital

for tests.

The Jets will be without backup defensive back Marquice Cole,

who has a strained hamstring.
