Browns Close Facility After Additional Player, Staff Member Test Positive for COVID-19

Published

on

The Browns have closed their facility after another player and a staff member test positive for COVID-19, the team announced. Contact tracing is now ongoing.

This news comes a day after safety Karl Joseph was placed on the Reserve/COVID list. The Joseph designation lifts the total count of Browns players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list to nine. Fellow safety Andrew Sendejo and tight end Harrison Bryant were both added to the list Tuesday as well. The three players added to the isolation list on Tuesday can return for Sunday’s game if they have been identified as close contacts, but not if they have tested positive.

There is no word from the NFL about if the Steelers and Browns can play their Week 17 game as scheduled at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
