CLEVELAND — Editor's note: the video in the player above is from a story published on November 22, 2020.

The Cleveland Browns have sidelined another player over possible exposure to COVID-19. 

On Wednesday the team announced that they have placed Linebacker Sione Takitaki on the reserve/COVID-19 list. 

The Cleveland Browns website clarifies that a player may not have tested positive for the virus if they have been put on the reserve list, but that it includes players who may have come into contact with a positive Coronavirus case. 

"Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19," the Browns say on their website.
