When the Browns placed quarterback Baker Mayfield on the reserve/COVID-19 list over the weekend, word was that he had landed on the list as a close contact of someone who tested positive and could be activated from the list on Wednesday.

That turned out to be the case. The Browns announced on Wednesday morning that Mayfield has been activated from the list.

Mayfield will be able to take part in practice as a result of the move and is in line for a normal week of preparation before starting against the Texans as the Browns this weekend.

When announcing Mayfield’s placement on the list, the Browns also announced that a staff member tested positive during the team’s bye week.

  1. I wish I could say I’m glad he’s off, but I kinda want to see how they’d do with Keenum at QB. I think all signs point to the Browns moving on from Baker this season. All the whispers in the past few weeks about Baker not being a franchise QB have to be coming from somewhere in that front office. It will be an interesting off-season for the Browns as they try to figure out what to do at QB. Do they go after Matt Ryan? Is Matt Stafford available and, if so, would they be interested? Jimmy G will likely be available, but he wouldn’t be an upgrade anyway. Try to resurrect Darnold? In the end, it is hard to imagine the Browns trying another rookie QB next year with that veteran offense. They can’t wait another year or two to figure out if they have the right guy.

  2. 5-3 in second half of the season would be an early Christmas gift. Stay healthy Brownies and make Cleveland proud!

  3. Cleveland – I love you guys – but you need to wrap your head around the fact that Baker is not Tua, not Kyler, not Josh Allen – not a franchise guy. Move on – or stay put – your choice.
