The Browns won’t have three of their four active running backs Sunday in New England.
RBs Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton and John Kelly won’t be available, Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday. All three were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier in the week.
The Browns have just one running back, D’Ernest Johnson, on their active roster. Brian Hill and Dexter Williams were added to the practice squad before Wednesday’s practice and could be called upon Sunday in New England.
Johnson, of course, played the best game of his three-year NFL career when the Browns called upon him to start Week 7 against the Broncos. He rushed for 146 yards and his first career touchdown in the 17-14 victory.
