Browns reopen facility after no new positives

The Cleveland Browns reopened their facility Friday after reporting no new positive results for COVID-19.

The team facility was closed the past two days, and the Browns canceled Thursday’s practice after consecutive days of positive results. The team was expected to practice Friday afternoon.

Star cornerback Denzel Ward was put on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday along with linebacker Malcolm Smith. Tight end Harrison Bryant and safety Andrew Sendejo were put on the list earlier this week. Linebacker B.J. Goodson has been on the list since last Saturday. All tested positive, per reports.

It’s the latest COVID-19 issue to face the Browns (10-5), who can clinch their first playoff berth since 2002 with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in their regular-season finale on Sunday. Even with a loss, the Browns can make the postseason, dependent on the outcome of other games.

Last Sunday, in a 23-16 loss to the New York Jets, the Browns played without most of their wide receivers, who were forced to sit out of the game because of contact tracing. However, the group — leading receiver Jarvis Landry (789 yards) plus Rashard Higgins, rookie Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge – was activated off the reserve list on Thursday along with linebacker Jacob Phillips.
