The Browns on Monday activated CB Denzel Ward from the PUP list. Ward has been sidelined with a foot injury throughout training camp so far, but he still has plenty of time to get into form ahead of the regular season.

Browns S Ronnie Harrison (ankle) and CB Troy Hill (knee) are inactive for today's game against the Bengals. S John Johnson III (hamstring), CB Denzel Ward (groin) and CB Greedy Williams (shoulder) are active.

Browns DE Jadeveon Clowney (ankle, knee) and CB Denzel Ward (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Bengals.

Browns DE Jadeveon Clowney (ankle, knee) and CB Denzel Ward (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Clowney played through a questionable tag for the same issues last week. Ward put in limited practices after sitting out Week 8. We'll check their statuses Sunday.

The Browns have ruled lead CB Denzel Ward (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. DE Jadeveon Clowney (ankle, groin, knee) is questionable. He played through a questionable tag last week but didn't practice at all this week despite the longer layoff following a Thursday night game. Clowney also replaced a chest issue for Week 7 with the groin this time around. Given the total lack of practice, it's probably better to not use him even if he's active.

Four Browns defenders who were questionable for today's game against the Cardinals are active. DE Myles Garrett (knee, ankle), DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, knee), CB Denzel Ward (neck) and CB Greg Newsome (calf) are ready to go. DE Takk McKinley (ankle, knee) is also playing through a questionable tag.

Browns DE Myles Garrett (knee, ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He was questionable last week for the same issues and played. Garrett finished the week with a limited Friday practice -- an improvement over last week, when he sat out Friday. DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, knee) is also questionable. He missed last week's game. CB Denzel Ward (neck) and CB Greg Newsome (calf) are questionable as well. LB Malcolm Smith has been ruled out. We'll update statuses for the questionable defenders come Sunday afternoon. Plan on using Garrett as usual in IDP lineups. You can probably find better options than the risk of waiting on the others.

Browns CB Denzel Ward left Sunday's loss to the Chargers with a neck injury. We'll see about his availability for next Sunday's home date with the Cardinals. Avoiding Ward would enhance the matchup for WR DeAndre Hopkins. Cleveland rookie LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah also suffered a throat contusion against the Chargers and went to a local hospital after the game. We'll see about his status, coming off a season-high 91% playing time.

The Browns list multiple defensive starters as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, however, reports that the team is "expecting most of their defensive nucleus intact." DE Myles Garrett is officially questionable, listed with knee and ankle issues that kept him out of Friday's practice. Garrett said earlier Friday that he expects to play, though. Also questionable are DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow), CB Denzel Ward (neck) and LB Malcolm Smith (abdomen). Garrett is easily the biggest IDP factor of the group, so his optimism is good news. The late-afternoon Sunday kickoff makes it tougher to wait on any of them, and the other 3 probably aren't worth the wait in most cases. We'll update them all when game inactives come out, though.

The Browns announced Saturday that CB Denzel Ward won't come off the COVID list in time to face the Steelers on Sunday. Slot CB Kevin Johnson will also remain on the list. That leaves Cleveland down at least 2 of its top 3 corners against pass-heavy Pittsburgh. And we're waiting to see whether CB Terrance Mitchell will play. He's questionable with a non-injury issue.

Browns CB Denzel Ward landed on the COVID list this week, and Cleveland.com reports that he tested positive. That means Ward will not only miss Sunday's game against the Steelers but might also not be back in time for a playoff opener next weekend. We'll see about his status for that contest next week.

Browns CB Denzel Ward (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He put in limited practices all week after missing the past 3 games. Ward is a low-level fantasy option, and the Sunday night kickoff makes it risky to wait on him. We'll update his status Sunday evening, though.

The Browns expect lead CB Denzel Ward to miss "a few weeks" with a calf strain he suffered in Sunday's win over the Eagles, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. That leaves Cleveland without its top cover man and top pass rusher (DE Myles Garrette on COVID reserve) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The Browns defense still looks attractive, though, against a Jacksonville offense that hasn't topped 260 total yards since Week 9 and tossed 4 INTs to Pittsburgh in Week 11.

Browns DE Olivier Vernon (abdomen) and CB Denzel Ward (groin) are active for today's game against the Cowboys. Neither is a high-level IDP option. Ward could be busy, though, against Dallas' high-powered pass offense. Cleveland is expected to start CB Terrance Mitchell opposite Ward, in place of the inactive Greedy Williams (shoulder).

Browns LB Mack Wilson is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. If he plays, it would be his season debut after missing the 1st 2 weeks with the hyperextended knee he suffered early in training camp. Even if Wilson is active, he'd make for a shaky IDP option. Wilson fill-in Jacob Phillips (knee) is out for the 2nd straight game. CB Greedy Williams (shoulder) has also been ruled out for the 3rd straight game. Fellow starting CB Denzel Ward (groin) is questionable. Ward came down with the injury in Thursday's practice and then sat out Friday, so he looks like a big question mark for the game. His absence would enhance the matchup for Washington lead WR Terry McLaurin. Cleveland has also ruled out DE Olivier Vernon (abdomen), and replacement Adrian Clayborn (hip) is questionable. Clayborn put in just a limited workout Friday after missing the previous 2 days.

Browns starting CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are inactive for today's game against the Seahawks. That marks the 4th straight game both players will have missed with hamstring injuries.

Browns CBs Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams are questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks with their hamstring injuries. Both players missed the past 3 contests, but both also returned to limited practices this week. Neither should be in your IDP plans even if active.
