Browns TE Harrison Bryant & LB Malcolm Smith Test Positive For COVID-19

According to Tom Pelissero, Browns LB Malcolm Smith and fourth-round TE Harrison Bryant have tested positive for COVID-19. 

Bryant was already on the reserve list for the virus as a close contact but tested positive this morning. The Browns announced they would continue to work virtually while conducting contact tracing. 

The Browns have had some issues with positive tests this past week but so far the NFL doesn’t believe there’s spread within the building. 

Cleveland’s game in Week 17 against the Steelers so far remains on as scheduled. The Browns can clinch a playoff berth with a win. 

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.

Bryant, 22, was selected with the No. 115 overall pick in the fourth round by the Browns. He’s currently in the first year of his four-year, $4.1 million contract with Cleveland.

In 2020, Bryant has appeared in 15 games for the Browns and caught 24 passes for 238 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
