Browns place 3 more on COVID list, Garrett kept home "sick"

As they try to stay one step ahead of the coronavirus, the Browns practiced Wednesday without their defensive star and were forced to place three other regulars on the COVID-19 list after they had close contact with an infected person.

The Browns also placed three more players - starting right tackle Jack Conklin, kicker Cody Parkey and long snapper Charley Hughlett - on the COVID-19 list as the team prepares for this week's home game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

On top of that, Browns starting center and NFLPA President JC Tretter missed practice with an excused absence.

In the meantime, the Browns are holding all meetings virtually as they continue to practice NFL-mandated intensive protocols, which the league is requiring teams to do for the remainder of the season starting Saturday to mitigate the virus' spread.

With Conklin out and his backup, Hubbard, still not available, Stefanski said Kendall Lamm is currently the team's starting right tackle and may have to face the Eagles, who have one of the league's best pass rushes.

I see him a lot because he gets a ton of reps on the scout team, so he's blocking Myles Garrett many times, Olivier Vernon.
