Cleveland Browns activate guard Joel Bitonio from reserve/COVID-19 list

BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns activated guard Joel Bitonio from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after he sat out their playoff opener last weekend.

In addition, Browns assistant offensive line coach Scott Peters also cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list. There are no longer any players or coaches currently on the list.

Bitonio, who was selected to the Pro Bowl for a third consecutive season, tested positive for the virus last week along with head coach Kevin Stefanski, who returned to practice Thursday.

Both Stefanski and Bitonio had to stay home for Cleveland's 48-37 win in Pittsburgh, the Browns' first playoff victory since 1994.

The longest-tenured player on the team, Bitonio leads the NFL in pass block win rate among guards.

Cleveland travels to Kansas City for an AFC divisional-round game on Sunday.
