The Cleveland Browns announced Friday that they’ve placed offensive lineman Chris Hubbard on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Browns have re-opened their facility after Hubbard’s positive test from earlier in the day.
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.
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.
