Browns Coach Kevin Stefanski, Key Players Set To Return In AFC Divisional Game Against Chiefs

The Cleveland Browns are riding high after they dispatched their rival the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night at Heinz Field in the AFC Wild Card game. They now move on to play the AFC’s No. 1 seed the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday afternoon.

They will get a boost for that game not only in getting back some of the players that have been on the COVID-19 list, but they will also get back the services of their head coach, Kevin Stefanski.

Stefanski watched the Wild Card playoff game from his basement due to testing positive for COVID-19 last Tuesday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Browns first-year head coach “feels great,” and unless he has a setback, he should be able to be on the sideline in Kansas City.

The entire team got the “all clear” on their latest round of COVID-19 testing, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. So, Pro Bowl left guard Joel Bitonio and cornerback Denzel Ward, two players who were not available against the Steelers, should be good to go on Sunday, as should all remaining members of the coaching staff.
