Denzel Ward (concussion) out for Browns versus Panthers

Cleveland Browns defensive back Denzel Ward (concussion) is out for Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.

What It Means:

Ward is the Browns' top corner, so his absence translates to an upgrade for D.J. Moore and Cam Newton. The 4th overall pick from this year's draft has 48 tackles (43 solo) with 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, and 11 pass deflections through 12 games.

The Browns D/ST is 21st in numberFire's Week 14 fantasy rankings.
