When the Cleveland Browns take the field on Sunday night, their head coach will be nestled into the basement of his Cleveland-area home. Kevin Stefanski is forced to stay away from his team after the rookie head coach tested positive for COVID-19 during the week.
Instead of watching the events unfold in front of him inside Heinz Field, calling plays and making adjustments during the game, Stefanski will be sitting on a couch like most everyone else. As ESPN’s Adam Schefter noted, Stefanski will not even have his phone turned on.
Stefanski feels fine and is asymptomatic, but he is not even traveling in private. He will be in contact with the team remotely until just before kickoff.
