Browns rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah won’t be able to start training camp on time.

Owusu-Koramoah has been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list.

Players can be placed on the list either because they test positive for COVID-19 or because they have a high-risk contact with someone who tested positive.

Owusu-Koramoah surprisingly fell in the draft and went to the Browns with the 52nd overall pick after virtually every mock draft projected him to go in the first round. It’s unclear why Owusu-Koramoah fell in the draft; a report surfaced after the draft that he had a heart issue that scared teams off, but both Owusu-Koramoah and the Browns disputed that report.

At Notre Dame last year, Owusu-Koramoah won the Butkus Award as the best linebacker in college football.

  1. what could go wrong with a really small player, that plays LB, and made zero impact plays vs Alabama, who oh by the way appears to be unvaccinated and now has COVID.

    I’m telling you right now Browns fan 2021 is going to be a trainwreck for you. 8 wins 9 losses best case scenario

  2. Why do people think the vaccine means you still can’t get covid? It works just like the flu shot. So keep washing your hands and wear your masks even if you had the shot. Doesn’t mean you’re 100% out of the clear.

  3. This is just a reminder that vaccinated people can still test positive, and also a **more important** reminder that the vaccine is still very important and very good. Vaccinated people who test positive are 99% asymptomatic, and the positive test is usually the only indication that the person has some quantity (usually very small) of the viral load.

  4. The fact the Browns wouldnt comment on his vaccination status means he’s unvaccinated

  5. @ Howbouthemcowboys: You must still really be salty about how the Browns took apart your Cowboys last season. How else does one explain your constant trolling of the Browns fans.

  6. I am speculating that JOK has been vaxxed. JOK said he is completely asymptomatic and was not aware he had Covid until he tested positive for it. That is consistent with a vaccinated person cntracting the virus.
    Good news is that infected vaccinated people tend to have no or minor symptoms, and are less contagious than unvaccinated people. So, much less risk to others on the team if vaccinated players show up with the virus.
    We’ll see for sure when we see how fast he rejoins the team. If he rejoins in less than 10 days, he was definitely vaccinated.
