CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah has been placed on the COVID-19 list just days before the opening of training camp.

He reported Saturday with the team’s other first-year players and quarterbacks.

Cleveland’s first practice is Wednesday. Owusu-Koramoah is expected to compete for a starting job.

He was projected to be a first-round pick, but slid back because he’s viewed as undersized and some teams were scared off by a reported heart condition.

The Browns were hit hard by the coronavirus last season.
