WHAT YOU GET FOR JUST $5 PER PLAYER PER WEEK:
The Cleveland Browns’ training facility remained closed Wednesday as the team and NFL continued to conduct contact tracing and wait for additional COVID-19 test results.
The Browns have been dealing with a pandemic outbreak for three weeks now. In Week 16, the team was without most of its receiving corps in a loss to the New York Jets.
In their Wildcard game against the Steelers, players testing positive for Covid-19 include wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge, defensive backs coach Jeff Howard and tight ends coach Drew Petzing.
According to NFL rules, anyone testing positive for COVID-19 must sit out at least 10 days, including coaches.
Special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer will serve as acting head coach Sunday.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Tuesday that there is no change to the status of Sunday night’s game at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field.
