BEREA, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns were informed Monday morning that a second player had tested positive for COVID-19.

While contact tracing is conducted, the Browns training facility in Berea has been closed.

The player who tested positive for the virus is self-isolating, the team said.

Head coach Kevin Stefanski said the team will provide updates on the player who tested positive but declined to say whether the player was active in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

The Browns issued the following statement regarding the second positive test:

“This morning the Cleveland Browns were informed that a player has tested positive for COVID-19. Per our NFL-NFLPA standard protocols, the individual has immediately self-isolated and the Browns facility is closed while contact tracing is being conducted. The team will continue to consult with the league and medical experts on the appropriate next steps as the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and the entire community remains our highest priority.”

On Friday, a player tested positive for COVID-19 and the facility was closed for several hours while contact tracing was conducted.

The team later placed Chris Hubbard on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
