NFL gives Browns until 2 PM Monday to activate players

The Cleveland Browns hopes of getting players back from the reserve/COVID-19 list got a boost from the NFL. Normally, a team must have players activated by the end of business the day before a game is scheduled. For a Monday game, teams must have their active roster set by 4 PM on Sunday.

The NFL has changed this rule for the games that were postponed this week. Cleveland and Las Vegas now must have their active rosters set by 2 PM Monday, giving both teams almost a full 24 hours to make adjustments to their teams. The two Tuesday games also have until gameday to change their active rosters.

Not only can the teams activate players off the COVID list but they also could activate players from the injured reserve as well. While there is no word that either team have players that could come off IR, it is possible.

For the Browns, this rule change could be a huge boost to their roster. With over 20 players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, more time gives a chance for more players to return.

Yesterday, Takk McKinley returned from the list but James Hudson III was added to it. While it had been reported, Jadeveon Clowney has not been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

We will keep you up to date on all the changes to the Browns roster right up until 2 PM Monday. The teams’ inactives list will then come out at 3:30 PM.
