                    === Browns send Ward, Johnson to IR ===
 
 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.
