CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The Cleveland Browns made several roster moves on Monday, including taking punter Jamie Gillan off the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Gillan was placed on the list July 30.

Cleveland also placed quarterback Garrett Gilbert on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

This new reserve list category was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

If a player falls into either of these categories, their club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on a player’s medical status other than referring to the roster status.

Clubs may not disclose whether a player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

The Browns also waived running back Brian Herrien and placed safety Karl Joseph on the Active/PUP list.
