Some big Eagles news on a Friday morning:
#Browns pass-rusher Myles Garrett is being placed on the COVID-19 reserve list.

That means he’s out for Sunday’s game.
Garrett’s been damn good this year. He’s the NFL sack leader (9.5) and is coming off a game in which he had six tackles, a half sack, and two stuffs. Massive loss for Cleveland and something that might swing the line in this game.
(Edit – looks like the line was Eagles +3.5 and just moved to +2.5)
Edit 2 – Garrett is the only Cleveland player out:
Statement from the #Browns says no high-risk close contacts were identified, meaning no others will miss Sunday’s game. This is why NFL-NFLPA protocols keep symptomatic individuals away. The team placed star DE Myles Garrett on the Reserve/COVID-19 list today. pic.twitter.com/uCXBFFdx1q
