The team revealed the illness and announced the move on Sunday morning just hours before kickoff. It means the Browns will roll with third-string Kendall Lamm as the starting left tackle in New York.
Wills was placed on the COVID-19 list during the week because he was deemed a close contact with someone who tested positive. Wills cleared COVID-19 protocols on Saturday and was activated, and the rookie LT traveled with the team to New York.
Alas, he will miss the game now anyway. And with backup Chris Hubbard on injured reserve with a major knee injury suffered last week, the job falls to Lamm.
