Report: Denzel Ward to miss “at least a few weeks”

The Browns will likely be without one of their top defenders in week 13 against the Titans.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Cleveland Browns Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

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:

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.
