Usama Young, T.J. Ward banged-up at safety, providing chance for Eric Hagg

The Cleveland Browns are dealing with multiple injuries at the safety position heading into Sunday's game with the New York Giants.

Starting strong safety T.J. Ward is day-to-day after undergoing surgery on his right thumb, but he isn't the only safety dealing with an injury. Starting free safety Usama Young injured his knee in the Browns' Week 4 loss to the Baltimore Ravens but was able to practice on Monday. In addition, Tashaun Gipson, who had been splitting time with Young, injured his knee against the Ravens and was unable to practice on Monday.

With the various injuries, the Browns may turn back to Eric Hagg, who started the first two games of the season at free safety but was inactive for Cleveland's last two games. Backup safety Ray Ventrone underwent surgery on a broken hand earlier this season but played the last two games with his hand in a cast and may also be called upon to contribute.
