The Cleveland Browns will get a big boost on their offensive line tomorrow while also losing a key starter on defense.

The Browns have placed starting linebacker B.J. Goodson on the reserve/COVID-19 list, according to a report from NFL Network. Earlier today, the team announced the facility was closed and the team’s flight to New York was delayed for contact tracing following the positive test.

Although the defense will lose Goodson, the Browns get back starting left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr., who was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday morning.

Goodson has started all 14 games for the Browns this season and accounted for a career-high 91 tackles. The defensive signal-caller has also accounted for a pair of interceptions and two tackles for loss.

Wills has started every game at left tackle during his rookie season campaign.

In an additional move, the Browns elevated center Javon Patterson from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement. Patterson is a second-year player out of Ole Miss and was signed to the practice squad on Nov. 10.

The Browns are set to kick-off tomorrow against the Jets at MetLife Stadium at 1 p.m.
