The Browns will likely be without a pair of key players for their rematch against the Ravens on Sunday.

Cleveland placed linebacker Anthony Walker and punter Jamie Gillan on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.

NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reported Gillan, while vaccinated, tested positive. But given that it’s already Thursday, there’s less time for Gillan to have a pair of negative tests separated by 24 hours for him to play.

Walker missed a few games due to injury early in the season, but is one of Cleveland’s key defenders. He’s recorded 85 total tackles, a sack, and a pair of pass breakups this season.

Gillan is averaging 43.9 yards per punt this season.

The Browns also placed tight end David Njoku on the COVID-19 list earlier this week.

  1. Oh no. Don’t know how they’ll get going within a noodle leg punter who kicks it 32 yards or a guy who can’t tackle anyone over 195 lbs.

  2. Bummer about Gillan. I hope I’m wrong, but I think the punter will be very important position for them against the Ravens on Sunday.

  3. Walker and the other Browns FAs are worth a hoot. It’s a stretch to name anyone on the 53 who has had a decent year

  4. So again, what’s the point of getting vaxed if you can still catch it? What a joke.

    if one is vaccinated, one has:
    much less chance of contracting the virus
    much less chance of getting seriously ill, requiring hospitalization
    extremely small chance of death

    does not sound like a joke to me.
