There were many players on teams that didn’t have a COVID-19 outbreak that weren’t happy their games this week were postponed. The NFL postponed three games due to COVID-19 outbreaks on the Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Rams and Washington Football Team.
The Browns will play the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday, and many players on the squad were not happy about this development.
Raiders cornerback Casey Hayward pondered online if the Browns were given a break because J.C. Tretter, the NFLPA president, is Cleveland’s center.
Linebacker Will Compton decided to throw shade at the Browns for pushing for the postponement.
Browns tight end David Njoku saw the tweet and decided to fire back with a matter of fact reply:
With all the talk online, things might get real chippy on Monday.
As of Friday, the Browns have had 24 players — 12 starters, including the punter — who either tested positive for COVID-19 this week or were still on the reserve/COVID-19 list from the previous week.
