Ward (knee) is good to go for Saturday's matchup with the Texans.

Ward injured his knee during practice this week, which resulted in a questionable tag. He will ultimately play through any residual pain and presumably take on his usual responsibilities at cornerback opposite Greg Newsome assuming any setbacks are avoided.

Questionable versus Houston

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-11

Ward questionable for Celevland's wild-card matchup against Houston on Saturday due to a knee injury, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

Ward suffered a knee injury during Cleveland's practice Thursday leaving his status for Saturday's game up in the air. If Ward ends up being unable to play, Martin Eemerson should get the start at corner.

Returing after three week absence

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-17

Ward (shoudler) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Ward sustained a shoulder injury in Week 11 against the Steelers and missed the next three games. He was a limited participant in all three practices this week and will reclaim his starting corner spot alongside Greg Newsome for Sunday's contest.

Trending towards game-time decision

Ward (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bears, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday that Ward is continuing to get better, signaling he may be closer to the 'probable' end of the questionable designation. If he can't play though, rookie fifth-rounder Cameron Mitchell would probably see additional snaps.

Missing another week

Ward (shoulder) is inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The 26-year-old cornerback is in line to miss his third game in a row as he continues to nurse a shoulder issue. Both Martin Emerson and Cameron Mitchell should see increased work in the Browns' secondary with Ward missing another game.

Could return Week 14

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-08

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

Ward has missed Cleveland's last two games with this shoulder issue, but after a week of limited practice sessions, he's got a chance to suit up for Sunday's contest. The Browns' defense has struggled without Ward over the last two weeks, allowing 65 total points. If the 26-year-old cornerback is unable to return to the field in Week 14, Martin Emerson should see increased work in Cleveland's secondary.

Limited practice Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-06

Ward (shoulder) was a limited participant at the Browns' practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Ward has missed the last two contest while nursing a shoulder injury, so his return to practice Wednesday is a positive sign for his chances to play Sunday versus Jacksonville. The cornerback's status the rest of the week is worth monitoring and if he's able to give it a go in Week 14, he'd certainly provide a big boost to Cleveland's secondary when they host the Jaguars.

Missing Week 13

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-01

Ward (shoulder) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams, Jake Trotter of reports.

Cleveland will be without its top cornerback for the second consecutive game, as Ward continues to nurse a shoulder injury. Ward's stout play has been a big reason why the Browns' defense has been so successful thus far, as they're allowing only 142 passing yards per game, which ranks first in the NFL by over 30 yards. Without Ward, expect Martin Emerson and Mike Ford to see increased opportunities in Cleveland's secondary.

Still sitting out of practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-29

Ward (shoulder) will not participate at practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Ward was sidelined for Sunday's loss at Denver due to a shoulder injury, and he's now missing the Browns' first practice of the new week as he nurses that same issue. Unless he's able to get back to practice Thursday or Friday, he'll probably be out again in Week 13 at the Rams.
