The #Browns’ latest COVID-19 situation has further disrupted preparations for #Sunday’s game against #Pittsburgh. #If they win, #Cleveland will advance to the playoffs for the first time since 2002, ending the NFL’s current longest streak without a postseason..

A league spokesperson noted that the game is continuing as scheduled so far, and that the situation is being closely monitored as contact tracing continues.

#Bryant and #Smith will miss #Sunday’s game, as will starting linebacker BJ #Goodson and safety #Andrew #Sendejo, both dealing with COVID-19.

#Browns head coach #Kevin #Stefanski was waiting for information on when – if anything – his team would be available to practice #Thursday. #After a long delay, the #Browns were able to hold an indoor practice for an hour #Wednesday, and #Stefanski is confident they will be ready for their biggest commitment in years.

#Last weekend, after a positive test ruled out the participation of several players due to close and high-risk contact with #Goodson, the #Browns entered their game against the #New #York #Jets without eight of their rotation players, including the star #Jarvis #Landry and three other wide receivers, and they ended up surprisingly losing 23-16.

#Landry, #Rashard #Higgins, #Donovan #Peoples-Jones and #KhaDarel #Hodge received clearance to train on #Thursday and their return would be a huge boost for quarterback #Baker #Mayfield, who threw his passes to players obtained from the practice team hours before the start of the clash against the #Los #Angeles. #Jets.

#For its part, the #Falcons have not yet disclosed whether the positive result was recorded in a player test. #Atlanta works virtually this #Thursday after consulting the NFL and health authorities.

The team said the positive test does not threaten the status of #Sunday’s game against the #Tampa #Bay #Buccaneers as the #Falcons end their season.
