Brandon Jacobs (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13.

Jacobs rushed for 75 yards off the bench last week, but has chronic knee problems at this stage of his career and couldn't make it through the ensuing practice week without a setback. Expect Peyton Hillis to get a game-day helmet behind Andre Brown. Jacobs' absence is good news for Brown's Week 13 fantasy outlook because the washed-up veteran had been a threat for goal-line carries.
