Browns’ RBs Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton tested positive for COVID-19, sources tell ESPN.
Both players are vaccinated, thus their status for Sunday’s game against New England remains in question. Each player would need two negative tests 24 hours apart to play.

Both players are vaccinated, so there's still hope they could play Sunday against the New England Patriots, per Schefter.
This news comes one day after Browns' running back John Kelly also was placed on the COVID list Monday. D'Ernest Johnson, a Week 7 standout, is the only currently available running back on Cleveland's 53-man roster. Kareem Hunt is currently on injured reserve with a calf injury.
Hunt is eligible to return off of injured reserve this week. Head coach Kevin Stefanski said the team will have an update on his status Wednesday.
Through the first nine weeks of the 2021 season, Chubb has a season rushing grade of 74.0 and an overall grade of 74.5. It is worth noting, though, that Chubb missed Weeks 6 and 7 against Arizona and Denver because of an injury.
