St. Louis Rams wide receiver Mark Clayton suffered a season-ending knee injury in a 2010 game against the Detroit Lions.  He started this year on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list, and saw the final stages of his rehab dogged by pain in his Achilles tendon.

He was activated from the PUP list on Wednesday, and on Friday the wide receiver announced via Twitter that he expects to play in Sunday's game against the Browns.

Clayton tweeted: "Guess its official! after a good week of practice I'll be making my 1st appearance back from last years injury Sunday."

It's a timely return, as the Rams have seen their receiver corps decimated by injury; Brandon Lloyd and Austin Pettis are the other healthy wideouts. When Clayton was injured in the fifth game of the 2010 season, he had 23 catches for 306 yards and 2 touchdowns, and seemed to work well with Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
