CLEVELAND — The COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot of things, including Browns training camp.
Among the changes is “Browns Live: Training Camp,” which will take fans on the field and behind the scenes at training camp via live-streaming video. Fans are unable to attend the popular annual event this year.
The Browns will stream the live two-hour show from 2-4 p.m. on all of the team’s media platforms, offering fans a close-up view of practice, plus other features.
“We are excited that our players are returning to the building this week and are eager to work with them in person, while continuing to closely follow all of the new protocols and processes in place that are focused on our entire team’s health, safety and overall well-being," said head coach Kevin Stefanski.
As players arrive back in town, they will be tested for coronavirus and have virtual meetings while they await their results.
If a player has three consecutive negative tests, he will be cleared to enter the facility and take his physical examination Saturday and Sunday.
On Monday, players will begin an acclimation period that will feature 60-minute sessions of conditioning and strength training in groups of no more than 15.
Full team practices can begin August 14, with no contact until at least August 17.
It has not been decided if fans will be able to attend regular-season games when the season begins.
All preseason games have been canceled.
