Four Browns Receivers Ruled Out Vs. Jets Due To COVID-19 Protocols

Not ideal for a team trying to clinch a playoff berth

Things have been going smoothly for the Cleveland Browns, who earned their first winning record in recent memory in 2020.

Something was bound to happen along the ride.

The team will be without four of their top wide receivers — Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge– Sunday against the New York Jets after placing them on their COVID-19/reserve list. Linebacker Jacob Phillips was put on the list, as well.

The team has called up wideouts Ja?Marcus Bradley and Derrick Willies and Montrel Meander to help fill the gaps.

Timing couldn’t really be worse for Cleveland, who with a win tomorrow could clinch a playoff berth.

Fortunately, they’re only playing the Jets and might be able to pull that off.
