Ward has been working to adjust his tackling technique during the offseason after suffering two concussions during his rookie campaign, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Ward missed three of the final four games last season, but he was cleared to participate in the Pro Bowl in January and suggested Wednesday that he hasn't suffered any setbacks. The 2018 first-round pick is locked and loaded as the Browns' No. 1 cornerback ahead of the 2019 season and improved health could help him top the stat line of 53 tackles, 11 pass breakups, three picks and one forced fumble he posted as a rookie.
Ward (concussion) has been cleared and will play in Sunday's Pro Bowl, Pat McManamon of ESPN reports. Per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Ward's playing time may be limited as a result of the cornerback's two late-season concussions, but Ward himself said he is fine, and there's been no indication the cornerback isn't in good health. The 2018 first-rounder is entering his first full offseason in the NFL after an impressive rookie campaign in which he tallied 53 tackles, 11 pass breakups and three picks in 13 games.
Ward (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Ward will have missed three of the season's final four games while dealing with a pair of concussions. The 21-year-old will finish his rookie season with 53 tackles (41 solo), three interception and a forced fumble in 13 games. Terrence Mitchell and Phillip Gaines should see increased snaps at cornerback in his absence.
Ward (concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Ward missed two weeks with a concussion before returning in Week 16 versus the Bengals, and he suffered another concussion in that contest. Nevertheless, interim coach Gregg Williams said Ward is in better shape after this concussion than the first one. Still, the Browns aren't in the playoffs so playing Ward could risk further complications.
Interim coach Gregg Williams said Ward is "much better this time around" following his second concussion of December, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports. Ward missed two games after his first concussion, but the team is hopeful to have him back for the season finale against the Ravens in Week 17. The Browns are eliminated from the playoffs and don't have much reason to push Ward to play if he's not 100 percent ready. Despite that, Ward should be considered questionable with a decent chance to see the field versus Baltimore.
