Reports: Browns CB Ward (calf) to miss a few games

Cleveland Browns standout cornerback Denzel Ward is expected to miss a few weeks with a calf strain, according to reports Tuesday.

Ward played every snap in last week’s 22-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Ward recorded his second interception of the season and impacted Eagles QB Carson Wentz on the play that resulted in a pick-six by Browns linebacker Sione Takitaki.

Ward, 23, has started every game but one in his 35 games with the Browns. Cleveland selected Ward No. 4 overall in the 2018 draft out of Ohio State, and he was named to the Pro Bowl as a rookie.

Ward has an NFL-leading 15 passes defensed this season to go with the two picks and a forced fumble. He has 37 tackles.

The Browns also will be without star defensive end Myles Garrett again this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to COVID-19 protocols. Garrett was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list last Friday.
