The Cleveland Browns announced Thursday that they’ve placed CB Denzel Ward on the COVID-19 list.
The Browns are dealing with some serious COVID-19 issues right now and have had to shut down their facility each of the past two days.
The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.
Ward, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $29,283,338 contract that included a $19,376,972 signing bonus.
The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Browns to pick up in 2021.
In 2020, Ward has appeared in 12 games for the Browns and recorded 46 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and 18 passes defended.
