As of Tuesday morning, the Browns have had a total of 24 players, 12 starters who have tested positive for COVID-19 this week or were still on last week’s COVID-19 reserve list.
The exponential increase in COVID cases in the NFL has led to the league “coming under pressure to move games,” a source told Schefter.
Another game that will be rescheduled is that of the Seattle Seahawks at the Los Angeles Rams, which will be on Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. ET according to league informants. At the same time on the same day, Washington will be played at the Philadelphia Eagles. Three games until the closing of this note have been modified.
The Rams and WFT rosters have been devastated by the coronavirus this week, with 25 players from Los Angeles and 21 from Washington on the reserve / COVID-19 roster.
With the NFL’s amended schedule, we now have games tomorrow, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
8 of the next 10 days have NFL games.
