    Breaking: Browns release statement on Stefanski

    Less than 48 hours after the Cleveland Browns clinched a playoff berth, the franchise received soul-crushing news. Head coach Kevin Stefanski has tested positive for COVID-19.

    Stefanski was the architect behind the Browns’ success this season, leading the franchise to its first playoff appearance since 2002. He did an excellent job developing Baker Mayfield, while allowing the offense to run primarily through running back Nick Chubb.

    Unfortunately, Stefanski will not be on the sidelines with his team this weekend for a third showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    “The Cleveland Browns were informed this morning that Head Coach Kevin Stefanski, two additional members of the coaching staff and two players have tested positive for COVID-19,” the team said in a statement. “Our facility is currently closed while contact tracing is taking place.”

    Cleveland revealed that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer is expected to serve as the acting head coach this Sunday against Pittsburgh.

    There are 2 other players as well (no names mentioned yet by Mary Kay Cabot out of C-town) but one is "significant".

    SO.....why are the players allowed to hug/high-five/shake hands, etc. after the game. That was amazing at the end of the game to see how many players were doing this. This is OK with the NFL? SMH

    I think its silly to have guys tackling, holding, grabbing and screaming for 4 hours and then think a handshake or exchanging jerseys is irresponsible.

    Playing any sport, especially high contact sports like football and basketball during a pandemic is irresponsible.

    This postseason is going to be weird. Major players will miss games. Imagine Ben or Mahomes missing the AFCCG? Not good at all for ratings.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    10 days... Stefanski would still be out...But the bigger thing is Bitonio, He is their best OL and Heyward should eat!

    * Well, If the Refs don't swallow their whistles again!

    Who cares about Stefanski is able to coach, I was just thinking Monday would be 10 days a walk through for Haden.
