NFL planning on Steelers-Browns game to be played Sunday as scheduled

#Despite multiple positive COVID-19 tests within the #Browns organization, the NFL is expecting #Cleveland to host #Sunday’s #Steelers-Browns game as scheduled.

#On a media call today focusing on the league’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, league officials said the game can be played safely in #Cleveland.

The league has insisted it will not postpone games for competitive reasons. #So, for instance, if the #Browns find themselves in a situation similar to the #Broncos when they had to shelve all their quarterbacks and use practice squad wide receiver #Kendall #Hinton at quarterback, the NFL would still make the #Browns play on #Sunday. #Only if it were viewed as unsafe to play the game would the league postpone it.

The NFL says the #Browns do not have an outbreak within their facility, but rather have just had multiple people in the organization exposed to COVID-19 in the community. #That would not be viewed as a reason to put the game off. #And so it appears that the game is on.
