Ward has left the field with a shoulder injury and his return is questionable.

Cleveland Browns safety T.J. Ward has left the team's game against the Miami Dolphins with an unspecified shoulder injury, according to the team.

Ward's return is questionable and he has been replaced by rookie Josh Aubrey.

Now in his fourth year with the Browns, Ward has been a force in the secondary since being taken in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has served as the starter during that entire span, accumulating 230 combined tackles and three interceptions.

Ward's last significant injury came in 2011, when a sprained foot cost him the final eight games of the season.

His exit could provide the Dolphins an opportunity to take shots over the top with speedy wideout Mike Wallace.
