Since the NFL moved the Cleveland Browns' upcoming game from Saturday to Monday, they should have a few players able to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list. The bad news, however, is that another starting offensive lineman has tested positive this week.
On Saturday afternoon, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport announced that right tackle James Hudson is heading to the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Hudson is the third starting offensive lineman for the Browns to test positive for COVID-19 this week. Wyatt Teller and Jedrick Wills Jr. were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list a few days ago.
As of now, Joel Bitonio and JC Tretter are the only Week 1 starters on the offensive line for the Browns who are eligible to play against the Raiders on Monday. Of course, that could change depending on the next few rounds of test results.
Not only are the Browns dealing with issues in the trenches, they're currently expected to be without Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum. If they can't return in time for Monday's game, Nick Mullens would get the start at quarterback.
The Browns could also be without Jadeveon Clowney, Ronnie Harrison, John Johnson III, Jarvis Landry, Greg Newsome II and Jacob Phillips.
Kickoff for the Browns-Raiders game is at 5 p.m. ET on Monday.
