Cleveland lost two defensive players in Sunday's game.

Two Cleveland Browns defensive players suffered leg injuries in Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins: safety T.J. Ward and defensive end Frostee Rucker. Both Ward and Rucker were hurt in the third quarter of the game, with Ward suffering a knee injury and Rucker going out after hurting his groin.

Neither player's status was updated after the loss, but there have been no indications that Ward or Rucker suffered serious injuries. Prior to his injury, Ward had been having a stellar game for Cleveland, picking up five tackles, an interception, a tackle for a loss and a pass deflection. Rucker, on the other hand, had amassed a single solo tackle in the contest.

More information on both players should be available as the week goes on, but it would not be good news for the Browns if they lost two starters. Ward's backup would likely be veteran Raymond Ventrone or rookie Tashaun Gipson, while Rucker would likely be replaced by Juqua Parker.
