CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have placed offensive guard Wyatt Teller on the reserve/COVID-19 list, in addition to making other roster moves Tuesday.
Based on NFL rules, Teller may still be able to play in Monday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. If he was exposed to the virus and didn't test positive, he only has to be on the reserve/COVID-19 list for at least five days from when he was last in contact with the infected individual, according to NFL protocol. Being on the list does not mean he has COVID.
Teller would be permitted to resume club activities on the sixth day after last exposure if all his PCR tests, including the fifth testing day, are negative. So if the last exposure was yesterday or earlier, he would be eligible to play Monday, which would then be up to the team.— Camryn Justice (@camijustice) December 8, 2020
Losing Teller would be a major blow, as he's one of the most improved players on the roster and has been playing well on the team's highly-regarded offensive line.
The Browns made other moves as well.
- Defensive end Porter Gustin was activated from the reserve/ COVID-19 list
- Wide receiver Taywan Taylor was placed on the reserve/injured list with a neck injury
- Wide receiver and punt returner Ryan Switzer was activated to the practice squad/injured list
- Browns released defensive end Jamal Davis from the practice squad
