Browns' Denzel Ward: Impressive NFL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward recorded six tackles (two solo), three passes defensed and two interceptions across 85 defensive snap in Sunday's 21-21 tie with the Steelers.

You can't have a much better NFL-debut than Ward, especially considering the fourth-overall pick was matched up with Antonio Brown for the majority of the afternoon. He is the youngest player to record two interceptions in NFL history, but the rookie was more focused on the play that got away from in the contest -- a 22-yard touchdown pass to Brown. "You always go into a game expecting to win," the cornerback said, "so it's frustrating." The gauntlet of talented receivers continues for Ward this Sunday, where he will matchup with fellow Buckeye Michael Thomas.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Healthy to enter regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward continued to practice without limitation Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Ward's preseason was largely derailed by a back injury sustained in Cleveland's third preseason game against the Eagles, but the No. 4 overall pick appears ready to play entering Week 1. The rookie is likely to see significant playing time against the Steelers on Sunday.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Practices Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (back) retook the field for practice Saturday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Ward departed Thursday's game early due to the back issue, but the back spasms diagnosis suggested he wouldn't be sidelined long. That's indeed the case, and the rookie cornerback -- who is taking aim at a starting role out of the gate -- should be set to challenge for a starting spot come Week 1.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Scheduled for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Hue Jackson said Ward (back) will undergo an MRI on Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Ward exited last night's preseason game under his own power after his torso awkwardly twisted while attempting a tackle. The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but Friday's testing should help clarify how much time Ward may need to recover.

Browns' Denzel Ward: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (ankle) retook the field for practice Tuesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Ward left Monday's practice early due to a sore ankle, but he's apparently no worse for the wear just a day later. The rookie cornerback, drafted four overall in April, appears to be in a good position to suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Bills and seems a good bet to start Week 1.
