The Cleveland Browns are set to take on the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon and while they should be able to get a win, they're going to be short-handed.

Cleveland will be without multiple key players on offense on Sunday, including star wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

The Browns wide receiver and a couple of his teammates have been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, per the NFL.

Cleveland placed its entire starting receiving corps -- Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge -- on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, as well as linebackers B.J. Goodson and Jacob Phillips, the team announced. The Browns elevated receivers Ja'Marcus Bradkley and Derrick Willies, and linebacker Montrel Meander from the practice squad in corresponding roster moves.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported the four receivers were placed on the COVID list due to being considered high-risk close contacts.

The Browns are not the first NFL team to have a situation like this, but the timing is pretty brutal. Cleveland needs to win today to solidify its postseason push.

Landry took to Twitter on Saturday evening to sum up his thoughts:

It's a tough situation, no doubt about it.

The Browns and the Jets are scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on CBS.
