Baker Mayfield

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield and head coach Kevin Stefanski have both tested positive for COVID-19, and their statuses are up in the air for Saturday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders, according to ESPN’s Field Yates, Kimberley Martin and Adam Schefter.

Additionally, the report states that Mayfield, who was placed on the COVID-19/reserve list, feels “completely normal” despite the positive test. Should Mayfield not be available on Sunday, the Browns will turn to Case Keenum. The Browns also announced that running backs coach Ryan Cordell also tested positive.

Browns’ special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will serve as Cleveland’s acting head coach should Stefanski, 39, be unavailable on Saturday.

“We have a game Saturday at 4:30, unless somebody tells me otherwise,” Stefanski said Wednesday.

The Browns released a statement in which that stated that Stefanski “is feeling fine and will continue his head-coaching duties virtually.”
