Source -- Cleveland Browns' Denzel Ward likely out...


Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward has a calf strain that is expected to sideline him “a few weeks,” a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The team announced the diagnosis Tuesday. Ward had an MRI on Monday, which revealed the injury.

Ward, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2018 draft, has two interceptions on the season, including one in Cleveland’s 22-17 victory Sunday over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Browns are already without their other starting cornerback, Greedy Williams, who has yet to play a down this season and is on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury suffered in training camp.

To replace Ward in the lineup, Cleveland’s options include preseason waiver pickup M.J. Stewart, nickelback Kevin Johnson, special-teams ace Tavierre Thomas, undrafted rookie A.J. Green or reserve Robert Jackson.

The Browns (7-3) will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9) on Sunday.
