The Cleveland Browns had already placed linebacker B.J Goodson on the reserve/Covid-19 list and were later dealt more bad news as starting receivers Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins as well as key backups Donovan Peoples-Jones and Khadarel Hodge were all placed on the list after being identified as high-risk close contacts of a positive test.
Cleveland’s flight to New Jersey was delayed by more than four hours as the team conducted contact tracing. Rookie linebacker Jacob Phillips was also placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Browns had only one active receiver left, Marvin Hall and had to call up both Derrick Willies and rookie Ja’Marcus Bradley off the practice squad before a scheduled departure of 7 p.m. ET. None of the three has posted a reception with Cleveland this season.
