Article Summary:

Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Denzel Ward has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will miss Sunday’s season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. The fourth-year cornerback had three interceptions this season, including a 99-yard return for a touchdown that set the tone in the Browns’ 41-16 win over the Bengals on Nov. 7.

The Browns will finish a disappointing season without Ward and linebacker Malcolm Smith, who was also placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Greedy Williams would be Ward’s likely replacement in the starting lineup, but he is dealing with a shoulder injury and was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.

The Browns did activate running back D’Ernest Johnson off the reserve/COVID-19 list, and the timing is good since Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are dealing with injuries and might sit out.
