Statement from the Cleveland Browns:
“The Cleveland Browns were informed this morning that Head Coach Kevin Stefanski, two additional members of the coaching staff and two players have tested positive for COVID-19. Our facility is currently closed while contact tracing is taking place. The team will continue to consult with the league and medical experts to determine the appropriate next steps as the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and the entire community remains our highest priority. Our contingency planning calls for Special Teams Coordinator Mike Priefer to serve as the acting Head Coach.”
Later in the afternoon, the Browns put Guard Joel Bitonio and Wide Receiver KhaDarel Hodge on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Center Nick Harris and Defensive End Olivier Vernon are on the injured reserve list.
