The Cleveland Browns activated eight players from the COVID/Reserve List on Monday. Some of the players who were on the list here got off ahead of next Monday’s contest with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
To clarify, this piece details key pieces on both sides of the ball.
Some of the names include safety Ronnie Harrison, Jr., defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and running back Kareem Hunt.
Right tackle Jedrick Wills, Jr. and defensive tackle Malik McDowell also are among those off the list as of yesterday.
PLAYERS STILL ON THE LIST
However, there are still some other big names who are on the COVID report for Cleveland. Those names include center J.C. Tretter, rookie corner Greg Newsome, and kicker Chase McLaughlin.
But getting players such as Hunt and Wills back are a big boost to a sputtering offense over the past couple of weeks.
And with a depleted defense, McDowell and Clowney will help take some of the edge-rushing pressure of Myles Garrett.
The secondary will also get a boost with the return of Harrison, who can play anywhere on the field.
All of the activations will help Cleveland prepare for a national spotlight game.
The Browns are looking forward to their second contest of the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In the new NFLPA protocols, players can be activated if they can provide two negative tests within a 24-hour time frame.
Likewise, The NFL and NFLPA are working toward cutting quarantine time which will speed up activation time from the COVID list.
