CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have activated quarterback Baker Mayfield from the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday morning.

Mayfield was placed on the list as a precaution after a staff member tested positive for the virus. Mayfield was one of the team members who was told to isolate after contact tracing.

The reserve/COVID-19 list category was created for players who test positive for the virus or who have been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person. Players who fall under either category are required to be immediately placed on the list.

The quarterback tested negative multiple times, allowing him to be taken off the list.

Mayfield missed practice on Monday but will return to practice on Wednesday.

The Browns are coming off their bye week, preparing for their next matchup against the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Head coach Kevin Stefanski said he expects everyone to be out on the practice field Wednesday, including running back Nick Chubb and right guard Wyatt Teller, who had been sidelined since the Week 5 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts where he sustained a calf injury.
