The Cleveland Brown became yet another NFL team whose players have become victims of the coronavirus. The team has placed Baker Mayfield, its quarterback, on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Since the Browns are on a bye this week, it is thankfully not a loss for the team as they hope that their star quarterback could be cleared by Wednesday.
The Browns released this statement on Sunday. “The Cleveland Browns were informed Saturday morning that a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing was conducted and close contacts were immediately self-isolated. When the team returns to work following the bye on Monday, it will follow the NFL-NFLPA intensive protocol. We will continue to work closely with the league and medical experts on the appropriate next steps with the health and safety of our players, coaches and staff members remaining our highest priority.”
When a player is placed on the new reserve list, it means that he has tested positive or he was in close contact with a person who tested positive. Mike Garafolo, NFL Network had said that Mayfield had been in contact with such a person. If he continues to test negative, Mayfield may be cleared by Wednesday and could play in Cleveland ‘s Week 10 game against the Houston Texans.
