Reports: NFL to move three weekend games due to COVID-19

The NFL is moving Saturday afternoon’s scheduled game between the Cleveland Browns and Las Vegas Raiders to Monday night, multiple outlets reported, because of the Browns’ battle against COVID-19.

Friday afternoon, the NFL also was working to move the Sunday games between the Washington Football Team and Philadelphia Eagles, as well as the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks, to Tuesday night, per reports.

Cleveland, Washington and the Rams all have more than 20 cases of COVID-19. Moving the games by 48 hours could give time for some players to clear health and safety protocols.

In the case of Cleveland and Washington, both their starting quarterbacks — Baker Mayfield and Taylor Heinicke, respectively — as well as their backups are in the protocol.

ESPN reported the Raiders and Browns will play the first game of a Monday night doubleheader at 5 p.m. in Cleveland. The regularly scheduled game between the Minnesota Vikings and host Chicago Bears at Soldier Field will follow at 8:20 p.m.
