Shorthanded doesn’t even begin to describe how the Cleveland Browns offense will look when the team takes the field in New York on Sunday. The top four wide receivers on the Browns were all placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list less than 24 hours before the scheduled kickoff at MetLife Stadium with the Jets.

Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, KhaDarel Hodge and Donovan Peoples-Jones are joined by linebacker Jacob Phillips on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday. The team’s plane to New York was delayed for several hours while contract tracing for a positive test was completed. All the players listed were deemed as close contacts and will miss Sunday’s game.

The Browns quickly elevated WRs Ja’Marcus Bradley and Derrick Willies, as well as LB Montrel Meander, from the practice squad as COVID-19 replacements. Left tackle Jedrick Wills was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday and will play against the 1-13 Jets.
