The Cleveland Browns closed their practice facility to conduct contact tracing after another player tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced Wednesday.
The team later announced that linebacker Sione Takitaki was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. This is the fourth time a Browns player has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past two weeks.
The Browns practiced Wednesday with the offense and defense working at different times, coach Kevin Stefanski said.
In all, eight players were held out as a precaution in Wednesday's practice as the team conducted contact tracing. None of the players -- Dontrell Hilliard, Robert Jackson, Elijah Lee, Jacob Phillips, Malcolm Smith, Taywan Taylor, Tavierre Thomas and Mack Wilson -- are considered high risk and each is expected back Thursday.
