Berea, OH (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Browns placed safety T.J. Ward and
linebacker James-Michael Johnson on injured reserve among a series of roster
moves on Tuesday.
Ward, the team's starting strong safety, suffered a bone bruise in his knee
during the third quarter of Sunday's 38-21 loss to Washington. The third-year
pro ranks second among Cleveland players with 68 tackles while forcing a club-
best three forced fumbles, and also came up with an interception against the
Redskins before exiting.
Johnson, a fourth-round pick of the Browns in this past April's draft, also
left Sunday's defeat with a knee injury. The Nevada product started eight of
the 10 games he appeared in at outside linebacker during his rookie campaign
and finished with 36 tackles.
The Browns said in a release that neither player will require surgery.
To fill the available spots, Cleveland signed cornerback Prince Miller and
linebacker Adrian Moten in addition to promoting defensive end Hall Davis to
the active roster from the practice squad.
Moten played in 12 games, primarily on special teams, in stops with
Indianapolis and Seattle last season, and had a brief stint with Philadelphia
before being waived in October.
