Friday PM update: Odell Beckham is listed as questionable on the final injury report after missing two practices. In reality, as long as he gets another negative Covid-19 test, he should be fine to play against Pittsburgh.

Friday PM update: Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said Beckham “got good work Wednesday, been in meetings virtually and if all goes according to plan tomorrow, there’s more walk through time, enough time to catch him up, barring his health,” per Nate Ulrich.

Friday AM update: Odell Beckham Jr. tested negative for Covid-19 on Friday, but needs to test negative again to return to the facility, per Scott Petrak. Beckham Jr. is a veteran and will play as long as he gets that second negative test, but it’s always better to get practices in.

Friday AM update: Beckham has tested negative for Covid-19, per Mary Kay Cabot.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was sent home from practice today due to an illness, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Right now, there is no reason to believe his symptoms are related to Covid-19, as head coach Kevin Stefanski says they don’t want to assume anything and that Beckham Jr. has not had a positive test, per ESPN’s Jake Trotter.

But, the team did administer a test for Beckham Jr. today and they will know the results tomorrow. For now, he won’t be with the team. The Browns take on the Steelers this week, as the two old division rivals meet again.
