Browns Get Good Gameday News, Pass All Covid-19 Tests, Conklin Expected to Play

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.

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.

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.
