Found October 13, 2012 on Raw Sports:
PLAYERS: T.J. WardJoe Haden
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
A source close to the Cleveland Browns has confirmed that safety T.J. Ward missed this morning's meetings and team walk-through practice. It was later discovered that Crocker Park (A Cleveland suburb mall) Security "found" Ward as he was waiting to be picked up by someone from the facility. At this point I cannot say why he was with Crocker Park Security or why he had to be picked up by someone else rather than driving home, but I'm sure folks can speculate. It should be noted that Ward is close friends with Browns cornerback, Joe Haden who is returning to action for the first time in 4 games due to a suspension for a failed drug test. If I learn more, I'll pass it along.
