11:59 AM PT -- Offensive lineman Chris Hubbard was just placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The team has not out-right said he's the player who contracted the virus, but it can be assumed he is after zero other high-risk close contacts were found.
The team has now re-opened its facility and is hosting an afternoon practice.
The Cleveland Browns are the latest NFL team to run into COVID troubles ... with the team announcing it has shut down its facility after a player tested positive for coronavirus.
The Browns -- who are set to host the Houston Texans on Sunday -- did not disclose which player contracted COVID, but stated he was immediately sent home to self-isolate, according to the team spokesperson.
The team will also conduct contact tracing in hopes of preventing a potential spread throughout the organization.
"The team will continue to hold meetings remotely (part of the NFL-NFLPA intensive protocol) and will consult with the league and medical experts on the appropriate next steps as the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and the entire community remains our highest priority," the team said in a statement.
The Browns ran into issues when a staff member tested positive last week. Baker Mayfield was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as a result ... but the QB never personally tested positive.
Cleveland joins a growing list of teams forced to temporarily shut down -- including the 49ers, Titans, Vikings and more.
