CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are looking ahead to their next matchup against the Tennessee Titans Sunday and the team might have a key player back in action.
Head coach Kevin Stefanski said on Monday that defensive end Myles Garrett is on track to be cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, which would allow him to return in time for the Titans game.
While he hasn’t been cleared yet, Stefanski said that Garrett is “trending that way.”
Garrett was placed on the list on Nov. 20 after missing practice earlier that week due to illness.
Fullback Andy Janovich will be cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, Stefanski said.
Janovich was placed on the list on Nov. 16.
The Browns haven’t just been dealing with the loss of players due to COVID-19, but they’ve also been dealing with multiple injuries.
Safety Ronnie Harrison, who left Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars after sustaining a shoulder injury in the first play of the game, will undergo tests to determine the severity of the injury.
Cornerback Denzel Ward, who has been sidelined with a calf injury he sustained after the game against the Philadelphia Eagles, is unlikely to play against the Titans but is “week-to-week,” Stefanski said.
As for safety Sheldrick Redwine, his knee injury sustained during the Eagles game is progressing and he will be considered “day-to-day,” according to Stefanski.
The Browns will hope to have as many of their players return by Sunday as two of the top teams in the AFC face off.
