The Browns will be without two of their key defenders as they take on the Patriots on Sunday.

Cleveland has ruled out defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and cornerback Denzel Ward.

Clowney has been dealing with ankle, knee, and elbow issues this week. Via Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram, head coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday that he didn’t want to get into specifics but Clowney just felt like he couldn’t play this week.

Ward is in the concussion protocol and didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday.

The Browns also ruled out backup offensive tackle Joe Haeg with a concussion suffered at practice, Stefanski said.

Cleveland’s full injury report with game statuses will be released later on Friday.

  1. That’s what happens when Denzel has more tackles than Clowney and Myles put together (last game).

  2. I’m soooo tired of being a Brown’s fan this organization is cursed!! I’ve never seen a team come up with more ways to lose than the Browns. 🙁

  3. Soooo does clowney even play anymore or does he have his own indefinite cozy place on the injured list?

  4. Denzel got his money,Mayfield didn’t, both are Top 5 busts.The most discouraging thing is although you can hang the draft choices on Dorsey the current regime compounded the problem with the Denzel long term deal.

  5. If you guys watched the game last week vs the Chargers. Clowney should have not been in that game playing injured. Clowney is a legit run stuffer and he wasn’t moving right at all. This is the right decision. Players that continue to play hurt actually hurt the team and become a liability, not an asset. Case in point: Baker Mayfield.
