No positive tests for Browns on Sunday morning, and game will go on

CLEVELAND — Things were calm for the Browns — finally — before the storm arrived.

The Browns had no new positive COVID-19 results Sunday morning, so the regular-season finale vs. the Steelers stayed on as scheduled for 1 p.m. at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The Browns have had a string of positive cases since Dec. 26.

They will be without six players against the Steelers: cornerbacks Denzel Ward and Kevin Johnson, linebackers B.J. Goodson and Malcolm Smith, free safety Andrew Sendejo and rookie tight end Harrison Bryant.


Offensive line coach Bill Callahan, assistant line coach Scott Peters and pass game coordinator/receivers coach Chad O’Shea are also out.

Coaching assistant Ryan Cordell will coach the linemen during the game, and chief of staff Callie Brownson will lead the receivers.

The Browns (10-5) will make the playoffs for the first time since 2002 with a win over the Steelers (12-3).
