Browns QB Baker Mayfield, QB Case Keenum, WR Jarvis Landry and TE Austin Hooper will not be activated from the COVID list for tonight's game vs. the Raiders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So QB Nick Mullens will get the start for Cleveland. His top 2 WRs figure to be Donovan Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins. David Njoku should top the TE depth chart. We'll see if TE Harrison Bryant (ankle) is able to play. Expect a run-heavy game plan featuring Nick Chubb from the Browns.

The Raiders at Browns game originally scheduled to kick off at 4:30 pm ET on Saturday is being moved to Monday due to the rash of COVID positives on the Browns, according to insider Josina Anderson. Even that is probably still subject to change based on more positive COVID tests in Cleveland. We'll see if any of the Browns currently on the COVID list -- namely Baker Mayfield, Case Keenum, Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper -- are activated before Monday. But, as of now, we'd still plan on not having those guys in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

Update: Raiders-Browns will kick off at 5 pm ET on Monday, per Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield landed on the COVID list Tuesday after a positive test. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "there are more positive tests with more Cleveland players," indicating that more names will be added today. The Browns had already placed 8 players on the list Monday. We'll see whether the outbreak winds up postponing Saturday's game against the Raiders -- which is in Cleveland. If it doesn't, then Mayfield looks likely to miss the game. Case Keenum would start in his place.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) "has an uphill battle" to play vs. the Lions today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cleveland will also be without WR Anthony Schwartz (concussion), leaving WRs Rashard Higgins, Demetric Felton, J'Marcus Bradley and Lawrence Cager behind Jarvis Landry. Expect a run-heavy attack from the Browns.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield (knee, foot, shoulder) is not listed on the final injury report. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice but admitted this week that he’s as banged up as he’s ever been. Even in Sunday’s plus matchup vs. the Lions, Mayfield is an unexciting QB2.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield did not practice on Wednesday. He's on the injury report with "left shoulder, foot, knee." Mayfield is expected to start this weekend's game vs. the Lions, but he'll be doing so at far less than 100%.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski labeled QB Baker Mayfield "day to day" with the knee contusion he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Further testing on Monday revealed no structural damage to that right knee. Mayfield figures to be ready for this weekend's game vs. the Lions, but we'll monitor his status throughout the week.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski expects QB Baker Mayfield (knee) to play Week 11. He said Mayfield is dealing with a knee contusion and could have gone back in the game vs. New England. Mayfield said afterward that x-rays on his right knee came back clean. He labeled himself "day to day." We'll keep an eye on him this coming week.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield suffered a knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. New England. He's officially questionable to return, but QB Case Keenum is now in the game. We'll update Mayfield's status when we know more.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield (shoulder) will start this weekend's game vs. the Steelers, HC Kevin Stefanski announced Friday. Mayfield will be playing through what's been reported as a fractured humerus bone and torn labrum in his left shoulder. He's at risk of an in-game aggravation, making him an extremely shaky Week 8 fantasy play.
