CLEVELAND (KMOX/AP)- The St. Louis Rams will be without offensive tackle Jason Smith for Sunday’s game with Cleveland.

The veteran lineman is inactive with a head injury. The team says Adam Goldberg will start in Smith’s spot.

The Rams will be hoping to contain a familiar face in the Browns backfield. Former St. Louis running back Chris Ogbonnaya gets the start, as Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty are out with injuries.

In other pregame news— Cleveland says wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi will miss his second game with symptoms from a concussion.

Massaquoi suffered a concussion against Seattle on Oct. 23. He missed one game, returned last week at Houston but didn’t finish after feeling “woozy.” Massaquoi did not practice this week. He will be
replaced in the starting lineup by Joshua Cribbs.

Also, Browns safety T.J. Ward is out with a foot sustained last week. Ward is still in a cast and could miss several games. Usama Young will start in Ward’s spot at strong safety.
