Denzel Ward diagnosed with calf strain

Pro Bowl CB leads the NFL with 15 passes defensed

Browns CB Denzel Ward has been diagnosed with a calf strain and is expected to miss some time.

Ward underwent an MRI on Monday, one day after playing every snap in the Browns' 22-17 victory over the Eagles.

Ward, the No. 4 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie, is coming off one of his best games of the season and leads the NFL with 15 passes defensed. He recorded four passes defensed and his second interception of the season in Cleveland's win over Philadelphia.
