Nick Chubb, other SEC alumni on Cleveland Browns test positive for COVID
The Cleveland Browns are dealing with a COVID situation as 4 players, including a trio of SEC alumni, have reportedly tested positive this week.
Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reported Tuesday that former Georgia standout Nick Chubb and fellow Browns running back Demetric Felton. This news comes a day after former Tennessee running back John Kelly and former UGA wide receiver Lawrence Cager were placed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive.
All four players are vaccinated against the virus. To play Sunday against the New England Patriots, a player needs to produce 2 negative tests separated by 24 hours.
This season, Chubb has rushed 120 times for 721 yards and 6 touchdowns. In Cleveland’s 41-16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Chubb logged 14 carries for 137 yards and 2 TDs.
