Browns Coach Stefanski Says WR’s on COVID-19/Reserve List Still Slated to Return Thursday

The Browns last week were hit with a bombshell when the team was told on Saturday that they would not have the services of a number of key players, including their entire wide out core.

The team was minus receivers Jarvis Landry, Donovan Peoples-Jones, Rashard Higgins, KhaDarel Hodge and Jacob Phillips.

Wednesday head coach Kevin Stefanski said that the receivers are still on schedule to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday, giving the team a huge boost as they enter Sunday’s massive AFC North game against the Steelers.

It was the first game missed in the entire career by Landry, and quarterback Baker Mayfield spoke Wednesday about how much it hurt Landry to miss his first career game.

“More so than you can probably put into words…he loves football and wants to be out there and compete…that definitely hurt him, he wants to be out there fighting with us,” Mayfield said.

The Browns remain double-digit favorites to win Sunday and get to the postseason for the first time since 2002 as they are 10-point favorites to beat the Steelers, who likely will play many backups in the affair.
