Cleveland Browns coach, practice squad player test positive for COVID-19


The #Cleveland #Browns closed their facility #Wednesday to conduct contact tracing after a coach and a practice squad player tested positive for COVID-19, according to head coach #Kevin #Stefanski.

The #Browns have battled issues with the coronavirus since #Saturday, when they had to place their entire receiving corps on the reserve/COVID-19 list as high-risk close contacts after they came into contact with another player who had tested positive. #Receivers #Jarvis #Landry, #Rashard #Higgins, #Donovan #Peoples-Jones and #KhaDarel #Hodge and linebackers B.J. #Goodson and #Jacob #Phillips all missed #Cleveland’s 23-16 loss to the #New #York #Jets.

#On #Tuesday, the #Browns added tight end #Harrison #Bryant and safeties #Karl #Joseph and #Andrew #Sendejo to the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The #Browns do not expect to get #Sendejo or #Goodson back in time for #Sunday’s regular-season finale against the #Pittsburgh #Steelers but are hopeful the other players, including the receivers, will be able to rejoin the team, beginning #Thursday, should they continue to test negative for the coronavirus.

#Cleveland can clinch its first playoff berth in 17 seasons with a victory over the #Steelers.
