This morning, the Browns announced that tight end Harrison Bryant, safety Ronnie Harrison Jr. and linebacker Malcolm Smith have been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Harrison has had the shortest stay of the three on the list after testing positive on Thursday, Jan. 7. Before the Browns made it official, NFL Network reported that Harrison had tested negative after the initial positive test — thus leading to the NFL deeming Harrison safe to play.
Two #Browns who tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday have tested negative since on multiple tests, per source. If they continue to test negative today, the NFL’s medical experts may revisit those results and their status for Sunday vs. the #Steelers.

Bryant has spent the longest time on the COVID-19 list of the three, after he was placed there on Dec. 29. The rookie tight end, Bryant, has caught 24 passes for 238 yards and three TDs.
Cornerback Denzel Ward remains on the list after he tested positive prior to Week 17.
