Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has tested positive for COVID-19, sources told ESPN’s Field Yates, Kimberley Martin and Adam Schefter, jeopardizing his availability for Saturday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
A source told Schefter that Mayfield, who was placed on the COVID-19/reserve list, feels “Completely normal” despite the positive test. Case Keenum would be in line to start if Mayfield is unavailable, with Nick Mullens serving as backup QB.
If Stefanski does not produce two negative tests in time, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will serve as Cleveland’s acting head coach.
Browns running backs coach Ryan Cordell also tested positive.
