NEWARK, NJ – Primary midfielder PJ Goodson, the inspiring defense captain, Browns will not be on the field Sunday against the planes to help the team win their first playoff game in 18 years.
He will also not be on the field in the season’s final match against the 11-3 Steelers, which could be a chance for the Browns to win the North Asia title and crown them in the first division since 1989.
Goodson, who leads the Browns with 91 high-profile tackles and initially tied with two interceptions, tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday and will miss the last two games of the season against the Jets and Steelers.
Players who test positive for the virus must stay away from the team for at least 10 days regardless of whether or not they have symptoms.
Brown was in the process of conducting a call-tracing operation on Saturday afternoon, and their flight to New Jersey for Sunday’s game against airplanes was delayed. Their facilities have also been closed, and they have held meetings at home awaiting news of contact tracing.
Goodson will be replaced by Tay Davis, Malcolm Smith or Mac Wilson, who was fired last week due to a coach’s decision. It’s a chance for Wilson to rid himself of sub-par playing and whatever else he earns caused him a healthy scratch last week.
“BJ is doing well,” said Stefansky on December 7, the day after Godson helped the Browns beat the Titans 41-35. “He is definitely the emotional leader of defense. You hear him before you see him. He rallies men in training and during games. He plays big matches in these ball games to help us win.”
On a much brighter note for Browns, Jedrick Wills Jr.’s excellent rookie season will continue. In the left intervention without interruption.
Wills from the COVID-19 reserve list were activated on Saturday and are due to encounter 1-13 aircraft.
Brown has also lifted the Javon Patterson Center from its training team as an alternative to COVID-19.
It is an important match for the Browns 10-4, who can clinch their first playoff game in 18 years with the help of some AFC rivals. Browns win and a loss or draw by Ravens, Dolphins or Colts earned for the first time since 2002.
Wills was placed on the COVID-19 list Thursday as close contact with someone outside of Browns who tested positive for the virus. The person was not associated with Tuesday’s wills charity event, in which he donated $ 50,000 in gifts and money to six needy families, in association with the Urban League of Greater Cleveland.
If the wills had not been enforced, sixth-year treatment of Kendall Lam would have started in his place. But Brown was confident all the time that Wills would start for the 15th time in the season because it had tested negative for the virus.
“[Wills] Coach Kevin Stefansky said on Thursday: “He played really well in that last game. “He continues to improve. He is a young player. You see with the young players there are some great moments and some moments when he wants to improve. The good news is that he wants to improve and he is working hard with Coach (Bill) Callaghan before, during and after training.”
Left goalkeeper Joel Bitonio was surprised and dismayed Thursday to hear that Wills were on the list.
He said, “This is a big thing.” “Talk about an upcoming rookie, starting every game and just focusing. Was it perfect? No, but the way he competes and some of the things he did in professional passes … a lot of the things he did were on one island on one. It was amazing. .
“We have a good relationship now. Me and JC (Tretter) work together sort of on the left side, and you’re going to get used to a guy like that who plays well. It’s obviously a big part of our attack and a big part of why we’re kind of starting to turn the corner here.”
Wills ranks 14th in NFL in blocking passes, according to profootballfocus.com
“He is constantly improving with every match,” said receiver Jarvis Landry. “He’s one of the players who’s stuck on the left side of the line this whole season. We’ll definitely need him.”
