BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns starting safety T.J. Ward is practicing with a broken right thumb and could play this Sunday against the New York Giants.
Ward had a protective cast on his hand as the Browns worked out Thursday. It was his first time back on the field since breaking his thumb last week in a loss at Baltimore. Ward underwent surgery earlier this week and had screws and plates inserted into his thumb. Ward's backup Ray Ventrone recently sustained a similar injury.
Browns wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin both remained sidelined with hamstring injuries. If both are out this week, rookie Josh Gordon could have a larger role in Cleveland's game plan. Offensive coordinator Brad Childress said Gordon, a second-round pick in the supplemental draft, had his best practice of the season Wednesday.
