The Cleveland Browns entered their bye week on Monday, and it comes at an opportune time. The team announced on Monday that a player is experiencing Covid-19 type symptoms. While no player, coach, or staff member has tested positive, the team is holding its Monday meetings in a virtual format.

Here’s the Browns full statement:

“The Cleveland Browns are conducting their football meetings remotely today. This morning, an active player who has not been in the facility today reported that he is experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms. While there have been no positive test results among players, coaches or staff members, the team decided to host meetings remotely to exercise the appropriate level of caution.”
