Cleveland Browns running backs Nick Chubb and rookie Demetric Felton tested positive for COVID-19, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday.

Per reports, both players are vaccinated. Therefore, each player would need two negative tests 24 hours apart to play in Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

With Kareem Hunt on injured reserve with an ailing calf, Cleveland’s D’Ernest Johnson is the lone remaining available running back at the moment. John Kelly was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday.

Chubb, 25, leads the team in carries (120), rushing yards (721) and rushing touchdowns (six) in seven games this season.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Chubb has rushed for 4,278 yards with 34 touchdowns in 51 career games since being selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Felton, 23, has three rushes for 16 yards while playing in nine games this season. He was selected by the Browns in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
