Browns-Raiders News & Notes
As mentioned above, the Browns have been hit hard by positive COVID-19 tests, which include starting quarterback Baker Mayfield and back-up Case Keenum. If neither can go, Nick Mullens would likely start under center. Starting tight end Austin Hooper, wide receiver Jarvis Landry, and running back Kareem Hunt are also on the list.
On the other side of the ball, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and safeties Grant Delpit and Ronnie Harrison Jr. are on the reserve/COVID list.
Players aren’t the only ones affected. Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski also tested positive earlier in the week. If he can’t return, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will serve as the acting head coach.
Raiders star tight end Darren Waller (knee/back) is questionable. In Waller’s absence, QB Derek Carr has turned to wide receiver Hunter Renfrow, who has 30 receptions for 353 yards over the past three games. He has at least 100 yards in each game.
