BEREA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Cleveland Browns have placed kicker Chase McLaughlin on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

McLaughlin has struggled for the Browns recently, having missed four of his last six field goal attempts.
On the season, McLaughlin has connected on 15-21 field goal attempts, and 31-32 extra points. He has missed a field goal in four straight games.
The Browns visit the Packers Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on FOX Youngstown.
