Browns Place Safety T.J. Ward And LB James-Michael Johnson On IR
CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Browns trip to Denver Sunday is daunting enough with a roster full of healthy players. Now we know that won’t be the case.
The team announced today that hard-hitting safety T.J. Ward will miss the final two games of the season with bone bruise in his knee.
Ward is currently second on the Browns with 68 tackles, and he also has forced a team-high three fumbles. He picked off a pass Sunday in the loss to the Redskins.
LB James-Michael Johnson has also been placed on season-ending IR, also with a knee injury. Johnson started eight of the 10 games in which he saw action. He posted 32 tackles on defense and three stops on special teams.
The club signed DB Prince Miller and LB Adrian Moten, and also elevated Hall Davis from practice squad.
Davis was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fifth round (149th overall) of the 2010 draft, and appeared in one regular season contest.
He spent 10 weeks on the Titans’ practice squad in 2010, before being signed to the active roster where he appeared in one game.
