  • Browns' Denzel Ward: Sprints at practice

    Ward (foot) sprinted after a morning walk-through Thursday, suggesting he'll eventually be fine, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.

    Ward, who is on the active/PUP list, has been on the field both days of camp, in uniform and behind position mates walking through various drills. The Browns may continue to limit his on-field activity, but Thursday's session was a hopeful sign the team's top corner will be ready come Week 1.

  • Browns' Denzel Ward: Expected to return soon

    Coach Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that he is confident Ward (foot) will return to the practice field "in the next couple of weeks," Ashley Bastock of Cleveland.com reports.

    Cleveland will continue to play things safe with its top cover corner as training camp gets underway. Tests revealed no structural damage after Ward injured his foot during minicamp in June, so there's close to zero risk he won't be ready come Week 1. He figures to once again be the best player in the Browns' defensive backfield this season.

  • Browns' Denzel Ward: Appears on PUP list

    Cleveland placed Ward (foot) on the active/PUP list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Tests revealed no structural damage after Ward suffered an injury to his foot back in minicamp, but it appears he may need more time to recover before he's ready to participate in training camp. Either way, he should be good to go by the regular season, at which point he'll be a better real-life player than a fantasy one as opposing quarterbacks shy away from his area of the field.

  • Browns' Denzel Ward: Tests reveal no structural damage

    Wards underwent an MRI and X-rays after sustaining a foot injury during Thursday's minicamp practice, but the tests revealed no serious structural damage, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

    Ward signed a five-year, $100.5 million extension in April after posting 43 tackles, 10 passes defended and three interceptions across 15 starts last season. Despite the injury scare, the 2018 first-round pick should be good to go for the start of training camp on July 30 and is poised to play a key role in Cleveland's secondary in 2022.

  • Browns' Denzel Ward: Should be back for training camp

    Ward (ankle/foot) should be good to go for the start of training camp, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

    Ward left Thursday's practice after suffering a lower-leg injury, but the issue appears to be minor. The 2018 first-round pick recently signed a five-year, $100.5 million extension after posting 43 tackles, 10 passes defended and three interceptions over 15 starts last season.

  • Browns' Denzel Ward: Exits practice early

    Ward left Thursday's practice early after his lower left leg was tended to by members of the Browns medical staff, Jake Furr of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Ward was seen walking slowly with his left cleat untied as he departed the field Thursday and never returned to practice thereafter, according to Farr. Head coach Kevin Stefanski was reluctant to provide any further clarification on the Pro-Bowl cornerback's status, saying that he did not have "enough details" immediately after the Browns' final day of veteran minicamp Thursday. Ward recently signed a lucrative 5-year, $100.5 million extension after registering 43 tackles, 10 passes defended and three interceptions over 15 starts last season. Though he dealt with nagging injuries throughout much of the 2021 campaign, the 25-year-old missed only one game due to injury when he sat out with a hamstring injury in Week 8.
