While the Bengals are the primary opponent, the Browns also find themselves still dealing with COVID-19 as the club placed defensive tackle Malik Jackson on the Reserve/COVID list on Thursday.

That move likely ends Jackson’s season, and possibly his time in Cleveland, as he was playing on a one-year contract.
The Browns are clearly in need of help at defensive tackle in the offseason, and it would appear unlikely that Jackson will be in the team’s plans for the 2022 season.
In addition to Jackson, the Browns also placed kicker Chris Blewitt on the Reserve/COVID-19 squad, and signed running back Benny LeMay and offensive tackle Alex Taylor to the practice squad on Thursday.
