CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns facilities closed again after another player tested positive for COVID-19 Wednesday.

The facility is closed and meetings will continue to take place remotely as part of the NFL-NFLPA intensive protocol while contact tracing is conducted to identify any potential high-risk close contacts.

“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,” the team said in a statement.

Defensive end Myles Garrett will remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list for the second week in a row and has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In addition to Garrett, the Browns have three other players on the reserve/COVID-19 list—fullback Andy Janovich, guard Chris Hubbard and defensive end Joe Jackson. Head Coach Kevin Stefanksi said their status for Sunday has not yet been decided.

"They're out but the next man has to step up," Stefanski said Wednesday.

Stefanski also said Garrett could be available in Week 13 against the Titans.
