Here's our weekly look at the contributions made by Browns rookies this season:

CB Joe Haden (first round): Haden leads the Browns in pass breakups (16) and interceptions (five). He's started the last four games at left cornerback. Overall, the Browns have intercepted 18 passes this season. 

S T.J. Ward (second round): Ward has recorded a team-high 114 tackles on defense. He's also leading the team in special-teams tackles (18). The Browns have never had a player lead the club in both categories since returning to NFL play in 1999. 

QB Colt McCoy (third round): McCoy completed 19-of-25 passes for 243 yards with two TDs and no interceptions in Cleveland's 19-17 loss at Cincinnati Sunday. His 76 percent completion percentage vs. the Bengals was the highest by a quarterback since 2004. McCoy, who's thrown for 1,218 yards with five TDs and three interceptions in six starts, will be the No. 1 QB for the rest of the season.

OG Shawn Lauvao (third round): Lauvao, who backs up Floyd Womack, played as a reserve in Week 15 at Cincinnati. He's appeared in eight games, starting one.

WR Carlton Mitchell (sixth round): Mitchell, listed behind Brian Robiskie and Joshua Cribbs on the depth chart, was inactive in Week 15. He's played in five games this season, all as a reserve. 

DL Brian Sanford (undrafted free agent): The Browns' third-string nose tackle has yet to appear in a game this season.

Practice-squad members

DL Travis Ivey (undrafted free agent): Waived from the roster on Sept. 4 and signed to the practice squad Sept. 5.

RB Quinn Porter (undrafted free agent): The Browns signed him to the practice squad on Nov. 23. The Stillman (Ala.) College product had a stint on the Redskins' practice squad in November and was originally signed by Green Bay.


RB Montario Hardesty (second round, No. 59) is on injured reserve after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the Browns' final preseason game. ...SS Larry Asante (fifth round): He was waived on Sept. 4 and signed to the Browns' practice squad the next day. The Buccaneers signed him to their 53-man roster on Nov. 30. ... DE Clifton Geathers (sixth round, No. 186) was waived by the Browns on Sept. 4. ... WR Johnathan Haggerty (undrafted free agent) was waived/injured on Aug. 16 with a foot injury and is currently on Cleveland's injured-reserve list.
