Browns' Denzel Ward: Grabs INT in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward recorded six solo tackles, two defended passes and one interception during Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Ward appeared in just 12 contests in 2019, having missed time due to a hamstring injury during the first half of the season. He concludes the campaign with 44 tackles (38 solo), 11 defended passes, two interceptions (one of which he returned for a touchdown) and one fumble recovery. The 2018 first-round pick is very likely to reprise his role as Cleveland's top cornerback in 2020.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (ankle) returned to Sunday's game at Arizona, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Ward exited during the first half due to the ankle injury, but it's apparently a minor issue since he is back on the field. The 22-year-old should resume working as the Browns' top cornerback.

Ward was forced out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with an ankle injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Halts Bengals' early momentum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward had five tackles, two passes defensed and a 61-yard interception return for a touchdown in Sunday's 27-19 win over the Bengals.

Cleveland's sluggish offense got a lift from the defense Sunday, when Ward made his first interception of the season matter. After the Browns turned the ball over on their first two possessions, the Bengals were in position to take a two-score lead, but Ward turned the momentum back to the home team. An Andy Dalton pass went through the hands receiver of Auden Tate, and Ward took it to the house for Cleveland's first pick-six since October of 2017.

Browns' Denzel Ward: No limitations Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

After spending the last four games on the sidelines, Ward enjoyed a bye week and will be ready for a matchup against the Patriots on Sunday. Ward will be in charge of shutting down opponents' top receivers going forward. The Patriots just placed Josh Gordon on injured reserve, so Julian Edelman (chest), Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) will their top three wideouts in this matchup.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) said Tuesday that he is back to practicing at full speed and that he expects to be ready to face the Patriots after Cleveland's Week 7 bye, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Won't play against Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is on the inactive list for the Week 6 matchup against Seattle.

This was the plan all along for Ward, who only saw the practice field on a limited basis this week. With a bye week on tap Week 7, there was no reason to rush the starting cornerback back to action. According to Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The FAN, T.J. Carrie will draw the start in his stead.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, isn't expected to play, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

The Browns will likely be down both of their top two cornerbacks for another week, as Greedy Williams (hamstring) is also expected to be held out. Ward sat out the last three games but returned to practice as a limited participant this week.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Ward sat out the last three games but returned to practice as a limited participant this week and has a chance to take the field in Week 6. The young cornerback's status remains up in the air, but the Browns could decide to express additional caution with the team's bye slated for next week.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ward and Greedy Williams (hamstring) joined practice for the first time in three weeks. As long as the two can get through this week of practice without a setback, they have a good shot at playing Sunday versus the Seahawks. Of course, a full-speed practice would eliminate all concern.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Can't go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is inactive for Monday's game against the 49ers.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Unlikely to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) isn't expected to play in Monday's game versus the 49ers, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Ward will likely join Greedy Williams (hamstring) on the sidelines for this prime-time outing. This will be the third straight game the duo misses. Even without their two starting corners, the Browns haven't allowed more than 254 passing yards in a game. In their place, TJ Carrie and Terrance Mitchell will continue to start at cornerback.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Carries questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the 49ers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ward didn't participate in any practices this week, so it seems unlikely he's active at game time despite the questionable tag leaving the door open. No. 2 cornerback Greedy Williams (hamstring) has sat out every practice as well, so the Browns are likely preparing for T.J. Carrie and Terrance Mitchell to start Monday.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) has yet to return to practice this week and is trending in the wrong direction ahead of Monday's matchup with the 49ers, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Barring a weekend resurgence, Ward and fellow starting corner Greedy Williams (hamstring) appear likely to miss consecutive games. TJ Carrie and Terrance Mitchell would be in line to see increased workloads should either or both ultimately sit.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is not practicing Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ward reportedly worked out on the side of the field. The second-year cornerback was held out of practice all last week and has already missed two consecutive games. Ward will have two more opportunities to participate in practice ahead of Monday's tilt against the 49ers, but he doesn't appear to have made tangible progress in his recovery yet.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Officially inactive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Longshot for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is not expected to suit up in Sunday's game against the Ravens, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This would be a huge blow to the Browns' secondary, considering he and Greedy Williams (hamstring) are both expected to be sidelined for the game. An official word will come when inactives are provided prior to kickoff, but if both he and Williams can't go, Terrance Mitchell and T.J. Carrie would be in line for starts.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

Ward didn't participate in practice this week, but it appears as though he has a shot to suit up Sunday. Cleveland's secondary is fighting a multitude of injuries, with Morgan Burnett (quadriceps) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) also listed as questionable,. Therefore, Ward's presence would be a notable boon for the unit versus Baltimore.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

The Browns held Jared Goff and the Rams to their lowest point total (20) of the year in Week 2 without Ward, Greedy Williams (hamstring), Morgan Burnett (quadriceps) and Damarious Randall (concussion). Still, having the starting secondary back will be necessary to take on rising star Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. Ward will look to get onto the practice field in some capacity by the end of the week in hopes of getting cleared for that contest.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Uncertain to return for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is uncertain to play in Week 4 against the Ravens, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Ward pulled a hamstring in practice late last week and wasn't available for the Browns' Week 3 loss to the Rams. Fellow starter Greedy Williams also pulled a hamstring in the same practice and he's also of uncertain status at present -- which is not good news ahead of a date with Lamar Jackson and Baltimore's offense. On the bright side, starting safety Damarious Randall is out of concussion protocol as of Tuesday, and he at least seems likely to suit up Sunday.
