The Browns are preparing for a huge Week 7 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens on the road, but unfortunately, it looks like it will have to play the game without two of its best players.

Both right guard Wyatt Teller and lead cornerback Denzel Ward have officially been ruled out. Teller nursing a calf injury, and Ward still dealing with a concussion.

The Browns' offensive line has been great this year, allowing just 1.5 sacks per game, which is good enough to be tied for third best in the NFL. Wyatt is considered the team's best offensive lineman, so that will be a big loss, especially going up against a Ravens defense that has loads of talent, despite struggling to start the year.

As for the secondary, you would expect Ward to be back next week, but anytime you have a star player with a concussion you want to be as cautious as possible. The Browns secondary is deep enough where they should be able to keep the Ravens in check, especially given they aren't a particularly prolific passing team.

The Browns are currently 6.5-point road underdogs in Baltimore in Week 7, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
