Cleveland Browns shut down facility as another player tests positive for COVID-19

BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns have shut down their practice facility once again after another player tested positive Monday morning for COVID-19.

"We're trying to follow all the rules and keep everybody safe," said coach Kevin Stefanski, who noted that contact tracing is ongoing.

Fullback Andy Janovich was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list later Monday. He played 26 snaps on offense and special teams in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Houston Texans.

This is the second consecutive week a Cleveland player has tested positive. The Browns had to shut down their facility Friday for contact tracing, then placed reserve offensive lineman Chris Hubbard on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

On Nov. 8, the Browns had to place Baker Mayfield on the reserve/COVID-19 list after the quarterback came into contact with a staff member who tested positive for the coronavirus. Mayfield didn't test positive and returned to practice Wednesday.

The Browns host the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend.
