The Browns announced on Monday morning that a player tested positive for COVID-19 and we learned on Monday afternoon that the player took part in Sunday’s win over the Texans.
The team announced that fullback Andy Janovich has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The team did not announce the reason for the move, but the timing connects the dots.
Janovich played 15 offensive snaps and 11 special teams snaps in Sunday’s 10-7 victory. The NFL has not reported any cases of COVID-19 spreading between players during games.
No other players were placed on the reserve list, which suggests that no other players have been found to be high-risk close contacts of Janovich.
Janovich joins offensive lineman Chris Hubbard on the reserve list. He will not be able to play against the Eagles in Week 11.
