Looking ahead, which is always dangerous, there is a report out there today that Denzel Ward will miss “at least a couple of weeks” with a calf injury he suffered against the Eagles on Sunday:
#Browns Denzel Ward to miss at least a few weeks with his calf strain, meaning the Browns will be without their two best defensive players -- Myles Garrett too -- vs. #Jaguars https://t.co/mRaUy2yQpU— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) November 24, 2020
The Browns play the Jaguars this week ahead of their game with the Titans. Cleveland will also be missing Myles Garrett, who is on the COVID-19 list, for the Jaguars game. Of course Jacksonville is so bad that it won’t matter, but Garrett will have a chance to return against the Titans.
The Titans have to beat the Colts this week to have any shot at winning the AFC South. If they aren’t able to win that game, this game against the Browns will be extremely important in the AFC Wild Card picture because Cleveland’s only shot to make the playoffs is there with the Steelers never losing.
There is also a rumor out there that the NFL is considering moving the game between the Titans and Browns to Sunday Night Football. Stay tuned.
