Denzel Ward (hip) slated to miss Saturday’s practice

Cleveland Browns rookie defensive back Denzel Ward is expected to miss Saturday’s rookie minicamp practice due to a hip injury.

Ward, who exited Friday’s practice early after suffering the injury, is being held out for precautionary reasons, according to Browns team reporter Andrew Gribble.

I am always going to be cautious with our guys, Browns head coach Hue Jackson said per the team’s official website. If I think that they have a little nick or something right now. I do not think being out here and having a guy if there is anything that we feel that might hurt a guy, I am going to make sure that I take him out. He did some good things, just watching him run around, too. We will see where he is tomorrow and go from there.

Ward was selected No. 4 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft last week. The Ohio State cover man ranked as Daniel Jeremiah’s fourth-best prospect.

But of course, Rothman is banking on Witten, paired with veteran play-by-play announcer Joe Tessitore, to develop into a star in his own right.

This is not a mere coincidence. Even with their Super Bowl drought spanning 22 years, the Cowboys have remained the NFL’s top TV draw and well, longest-running soap opera. The intense coverage of the team helped Witten and Romo become comfortable in expressing themselves publicly. Yet the high amount of national TV games (the Cowboys always max out, which means six regular-season games this year, excluding possible games that are flexed to NBC’s Sunday Night Football), also brought another type of exposure as Dallas’ star players repeatedly are tapped to participate in network production meetings a day or two before the game, where strategy and team issues are typically discussed in detail.

It developed that Victor Espinoza still had no Derby mount. When Ruis offered him Bolt d’Oro, a fellow jockey told Espinoza, Maybe you should wait. You’re taking the mount that finished second in the Santa Anta Derby.

No, I wasn’t second, Espinoza said.The horse was.
