Browns dealing with COVID issue ahead of Titans game

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

It was announced earlier this morning that the Browns were closing their facility after a positive COVID test:

It sounds like this won’t be a major event like we have seen other places:

This is something to keep an eye on throughout the next couple of days. What we have seen recently is that these things are handled differently now than they were when the Titans had their outbreak back in October. The NFL is pushing forward with getting these games in on the week they are scheduled. They have re-done a ton of the schedule to make sure the game between the Ravens and Steelers, scheduled for this afternoon, is played as a part of week 12 - even if it is played almost a week after it was scheduled on the calendar.

The rage towards teams going through these things has also subsided. Doug Farrar blocked half of Titans Twitter for calling him out for his ridiculous take that the Titans should be removed from the 2020 NFL season. I haven’t seen him say that about these other teams...of course how could I because I am blocked...

Anyway, it doesn’t seem at this point that the Titans game is in jeopardy of getting moved from Sunday, but it’s something to watch.
