Browns' Denzel Ward (calf) expected to remain out Week 13

Cleveland Browns defensive back Denzel Ward (calf) is not expected to return Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans, per head coach Kevin Stefanski.

What It Means:

Ward missed his first game of the season on Sunday and the Browns allowed Mike Glennon to throw for 235 yards with 2 touchdowns and no interceptions in his first start since 2007. The former No. 4 overall pick will miss at least one more contest. That is a positive sign for A.J. Brown and Ryan Tannehill's Week 13 outlooks.

Per Pro Football Focus, Ward has earned the 15th-best overall defensive grade (75.5) and 10th-best coverage grade (78.8) among cornerbacks with 100-plus snaps this season. The Titans have earned PFF's 10th-best passing grade on the year among offenses.
