Browns player tests positive for COVID-19; team closes facility ahead of Week 10 game vs. Texans

As COVID-19 cases peak across the country, the NFL season is rolling along. 

Teams are dealing with positive tests among players and staff but have found success in isolating those cases, and closing team facilities after news of a positive is becoming a common practice. That's what the Cleveland Browns did Friday, when the team announced a player had tested positive for the virus. 

"The individual has immediately self-isolated and the Browns facility is closed this morning while contact tracing is being conducted," the team said in a statement.

The Browns are scheduled to host the Houston Texans on Sunday. Houston closed its facility last Thursday and the Wednesday before that following positive player tests.
