The Cleveland Browns have placed a pair of starters, safety
T.J. Ward and linebacker James-Michael Johnson on injured reserve, ending their
2012 seasons, reports Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk.
The Cleveland Browns lost two starters for the rest of the
season on Tuesday as the team placed safety T.J. Ward and linebacker
James-Michael Johnson on injured reserve.
Ward suffered a bone bruise in his right knee in the third
quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Washington Redskins. Johnson also suffered a
knee injury last weekend, but neither player is expected to require surgery.
Ward was a starter for all 14 games the Browns played this
season, finishing the year with 68 tackles and one interception. Johnson started
eight of the 10 games he played in, compiling 36 tackles on the season.
Following the roster moves involving Ward and Johnson, the
Browns now have a total of 10 plays on the season-ending injured reserve list.
