Browns CB Denzel Ward injures knee, questionable vs. Texans

Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward sustained a knee injury in practice Thursday and is questionable for Saturday’s wild-card game against the Houston Texans, head coach Kevin Stefanski said.

Ward, a Pro Bowl selection for the third time this season, was limited in practice, the coach said.

On the regular season, Ward, 26, appeared in 13 games (11 starts) and tallied 34 tackles, 11 pass breakups, two interceptions and a forced fumble.

Stefanski said safety Grant Delpit, who is battling a groin injury, has been ruled out. The Browns designated him to return from injured reserve on Thursday.

Also out against Houston are wide receiver Cedric Tillman (concussion) and kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring).
