The Cleveland Browns enter over a month off between the end of mandatory minicamp this week and the beginning of training camp in late July. As is true with all teams, injuries can derail a season quickly as could significant discipline for QB Deshaun Watson.

Jack Conklin’s recovery from last year’s devastating knee injury was the biggest medical issue coming into the offseason. Greedy Williams and Jakeem Grant joined Conklin in sitting out minicamp practices with undisclosed injuries.

A big scare in the final practice of minicamp, which took place at FirstEnergy Stadium, was when Denzel Ward left the field earlier with medical staff.

According to a new report, Ward dodged any significant foot injury and should be ready for training camp:

An MRI and X-ray on the left foot which Ward injured during Thursday’s practice inside First Energy Stadium showed no structural damage, a league source confirmed to the Beacon Journal. He is expected to be available once training camp starts July 27.

The good news continued with Williams’ injury:

Greedy Williams spent much of the three days working with a trainer off to the side as he recovers from what is, per reports, a sprained ankle that also isn’t expected to be a long-term issue.

This early in the offseason, Cleveland likely played it cautious with any injury concerns. With Troy Hill traded in the offseason and Greg Newsome II moving inside during three-receiver sets, Ward and Williams will be the team’s primary outside corners.

Health is vital in the NFL, Ward and Williams being healthy for training camp is great news going into the weekend.
