The Cleveland Browns placed offensive tackle Jack Conklin, kicker Cody Parkey and long snapper Charley Hughlett on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, two days after temporarily closing their facility due to a positive test.
Placement on reserve/COVID-19 is for players who either tested positive for the virus or have been in close contact with someone who has.
Cleveland.com reported Conklin, Hughlett and Parkey were identified as high-risk contacts of an unidentified person who tested positive. If they continue to test negative, they will be able to play Sunday when the Browns (6-3) host the Philadelphia Eagles (3-5-1).
Coach Kevin Stefanski also said Wednesday that standout defensive end Myles Garrett was sick and would miss practice on Wednesday. He has not tested positive for COVID-19 but was staying home.
The Browns announced a positive test and the closure of their facility in Berea, Ohio, on Monday. Later that day, the team placed fullback Andy Janovich on the list. A similar shutdown happened last Friday and guard Chris Hubbard was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
