It’s more bad news for the Cleveland Browns. Today, the team announced two players have tested positive for COVID-19, and the team’s facility in Berea is closed for a second day for contact tracing.

It was closed for a time Wednesday, but the team managed to have practice as they prepare for a Sunday battle with the 12-3 Steelers.

The game is almost a “do or die” for Cleveland. If they lose, they will need help to make it to the postseason as a Wild Card.

The team is hopeful that they can reopen the facility later on Thursday and have a normal practice.

A report from states that one of the players who tested positive today was already on the reserve list as a contact.

For now, the team is still minus most of their wide out corps, the same group that missed last week’s 23-16 upset loss to the Jets.

If they test negative, they are all expected to be back with the team today, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.
