The Cleveland Browns announced Thursday that they’ve activated offensive lineman Chris Hubbard from the COVID-19 list and placed DE Porter Gustin on the list.
In total, Hubbard spent less than two weeks on the list.
The Browns have been dealing with COVID issues the past few weeks and could be placing more players on the list in the near future after the team shutdown their facility on Thursday.
Hubbard, 29, signed on with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of UAB back in 2013. He spent his first year on the practice squad before returning to the team on two consecutive one-year contracts.
Hubbard signed a five-year, $36.5 million contract with the Browns in March of 2018. He’s entering the third year of this contract and was set to earn base salaries of $6,150,000 and $6,650,000 over the next two years when he agreed to a restructured contract this past offseason that can void his 2021 year.
In 2020, Hubbard has appeared in seven games for the Browns, making four starts for them.
