NFL: Browns place eight players on COVID list

Array ( [0] => [1] => 550 [2] => 201 [3] => 1 )

The Cleveland Browns were placed in enhanced COVID-19 mitigation protocols Tuesday after putting eight players — six from the active roster — on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The team held meetings virtually and Tuesday’s walkthrough was closed to the media. All tiered personnel are required to wear masks indoors.

The Browns announced the following players on the COVID list: wide receiver Jarvis Landry, offensive tackle Jedrick Wills Jr., tight end Austin Hooper, guard Wyatt Teller, defensive end Takkarist McKinley, guard Drew Forbes, wide receiver JoJo Natson (practice squad) and tight end Ross Travis (practice squad).

The Browns also announced the signing of wide receiver Ja’Marcus Bradley to the practice squad.

There were 37 positive tests for COVID across the NFL on Monday.

The Browns (7-6) host the Las Vegas Raiders (6-7) on Saturday. It’s not likely that any player who was placed on the list would be able to get cleared in time for the game.
