Browns Place Myles Garrett on COVID-19/reserve List
The Cleveland Browns have placed superstar defensive lineman Myles Garrett on the COVID-19/reserve list on Friday, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter.
“This morning the Cleveland Browns were informed that a player has tested positive for COVID-19,” the team announced in a statement. “Contact tracing has been conducted and the individual has self-isolated. He has not been in the facility all week and zero high-risk contacts have been identified.”
Garrett was sent home prior to practice on Wednesday after he reported not feeling well. Cleveland is set to take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Garrett currently leads the NFL in sacks with 9.5 this season, to go along with four forced fumbles.
