Cornerback Browns Denzel Ward injured his leg at the team’s final mini-camp practice, but reports indicated that tests showed he avoided serious injury as the team’s off-season program came to an end.
Ward sent the same message on Thursday. He wore walking boots while attending a youth football camp in Akron and said he had a sore leg, predicting everything would be fine when the Browns got back on the field.
“Yeah, I’ll be fine” Ward said via Nate Ulrich of Akron Lighthouse Magazine.
This offseason, Ward signed a five-year, $100.5 million extension that speaks to his importance to Cleveland’s defense. This should make the Browns tread carefully if there is any doubt about Ward’s health at the start of camp, but for now it looks like they have nothing to worry about.
