The positive test also reportedly affected other players who were in close contact with that person, Jones said, and they too were sent home.

According to current NFL protocol, any players who aren’t fully vaccinated but who are exposed to the virus are required to quarantine.

The Browns are currently in Phase 3 of their offseason training, which means virtual meetings and some on-field action for limited players. Practices and meetings will continue to evolve during the offseason as NFL coronavirus protocols change.

At this time NFL players are not required to get vaccinated.
