The Cleveland Browns have shut down their practice facility once again after another player tested positive this morning for COVID-19.
The Browns defeated the Houston Texans 10-7 yesterday, and host the Eagles next weekend.
“We’re trying to follow all the rules and keep everybody safe,” said coach Kevin Stefanski, who noted contact tracing is ongoing.
This is the second consecutive week a Cleveland player has tested positive. The Browns had to shut down their facility Friday for contact tracing, then placed reserve offensive lineman Chris Hubbard on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
On Nov. 8, the Browns had to place Baker Mayfield on the reserve/COVID-19 list after the quarterback came into contact with a staff member who tested positive for the coronavirus. Mayfield himself didn’t test positive and returned to practice Wednesday.
