It’s been an ugly week on the COVID front for Cleveland Browns fans.
Seemingly each day there’s another couple of players who are added to the COVID-19/reserve list or test positive virus.
Currently, here is the list of guys who are out for Saturday’s game against the Raiders right now because of COVID.
Out for Saturday
Stephen Carlson – TE
Drew Forbes – OL
Jamie Gillan – P
Troy Hill – DB
Austin Hooper – TE
John Johnson III – DB
Jarvis Landry – WR
Baker Mayfield – QB
Malik McDowell – DL
Takk McKinley – DL
Nate Meadors – DB
JoJo Natson – WR
Ifeadi Odenbigo – DL
Johnny Stanton – FB
Wyatt Teller – OL
Ross Travis – TE
Anthony Walker – LB
Jedrick Wills – OL

Returning from COVID
It’s not all bad news in Cleveland right now though.
On Wednesday, tight end David Njoku announced via Instagram that he would be back this week from a COVID absence.

Stay tuned through the rest of the week to see if anyone else becomes available for the Browns ahead of Saturday’s game with Las Vegas.
The nfl needs to test everyone on every team now, including the colts and the patriots, it seems funny that only 3 teams out of 32 have all these players out but the games the nfl wants to be played with all it’s players will be played because other teams haven’t been tested, the nfl doesn’t want the Browns, Rams, or Washington football team in the playoffs, that’s my belief.
