CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed that 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.

Garrett was placed on the list Friday after the team reported a player had tested positive for the virus.

Stefanski said that without getting into specifics, Garrett was being ruled out because that's what the NFL and team's COVID-19 protocols call for.

"We're just following the rules, and we'll continue to do so," Stefanski said.

The Browns defense was able to step up in Garrett's absence on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, and they'll need to do the same this week.

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

The defense might be in for a bit more of a challenge against the Jaguars as a few players are dealing with injuries.

Stefanski said that safety Ronnie Harrison, who left the game Sunday with a knee injury, will be day-to-day. Cornerback Denzel Ward, who had a phenomenal game Sunday, reported a calf injury Monday morning and will undergo an MRI.

The Browns will learn more about the injuries and the status of the players on the reserve/COVID-19 list as the week continues.
