The Browns got some good news in front of their wild-card playoff game against the Steelers, as the team has cleared the COVID-19 protocol, with no new positive tests today.
No new positive tests today in Cleveland, per source. All games today are a go.

The team will still be without a number of players and coaches for the game after testing positive earlier in the week, but at least there were no new names on the list.
Among the missing will be coach Kevin Stefanski, offensive line coach Bill Callahan, assistant line coach Scott Peters, tight ends coach Drew Petzing, and defensive backs coach Jeff Howard will not be in attendance. Left guard Joel Bitonio, wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge, cornerback Kevin Johnson, and cornerback Denzel Ward.
More good news for the Browns as NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that All-Pro RT Jack Conklin, who is listed as questionable, should be able to play.
All of the #Browns gameday COVID tests were negative. I’ve also been told that all signs are looking good for RT Jack Conklin to play tonight vs the #Steelers. (The All-Pro was questionable w/ an illness.)

Temps for the game at Heinz Field is expected to be in the mid to low 30’s, and no rain or snow is expected for the game.
