The Cleveland Browns best cornerbacks are on the Week 3 injury report
Defensive health has been a problem early in the season for the Cleveland Browns. And unfortunately, just when it looked as though players were coming back, they saw others go down. Kevin Johnson, Mack Wilson, and Greedy Williams all returned to practice on a limited basis but then starting cornerback Denzel Ward went down with a groin injury.
His status is now up in the air, as is Wilson’s. The former fifth-round pick is listed as questionable along with Ward. Wilson has yet to make his 2020 debut after suffering a hyperextended knee but the fact that he’s already practiced has been encouraging.
As for Greedy Williams, he’s listed as being out, meaning we still have to wait to see him in action for at least one more week. Johnson, on the other hand, is expected to suit up as he says he feels fine after suffering a lacerated liver in training camp.
Cleveland will also be without Olivier Vernon and Jacob Phillips as they continue to be without many of their defenders.
Here is the Browns injury report for Week 3, courtesy of the team’s official website.
Jacob Phillips, LB, Knee
Olivier Vernon, DE, Abdomen
Greedy Williams, CB, Shoulder
Adrian Clayborn, DE, Hip
Mack Wilson, LB, Knee
Denzel Ward, CB, Groin
A sign that Ward might not be able to go was the fact that the Browns elevated rookie A.J. Green to the active roster from the practice squad on Saturday. Green was undrafted out of Oklahoma State but Cleveland gave him a hefty signing bonus showing they have high expectations for him.
