Sharing is caring!

The Cleveland Browns are slated to battle the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium tomorrow afternoon, but there’s been a massive wrinkle that just came to light.

After a Browns player has tested positive for COVID-19, the team facility has been closed. Additionally, the team flight to New Jersey has been delayed while contact tracing is being conducted.

The Browns released the following statement:

“Earlier today, the Cleveland Browns were informed that a player’s test results have come back positive for COVID-19. Our facility is closed and our flight to New Jersey has been delayed while contact tracing is being conducted. The team is holding meetings remotely as we continue to consult with the NFL and medical experts on the appropriate next steps as the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and the entire community remains our highest priority.”

The Browns have not yet revealed the identity of the player who tested positive.
