CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have activated quarterback Baker Mayfield from the COVID-19 list, clearing him to practice and play this week against Houston. 

Mayfield had to isolate for several days after he had close contact with a staff member who tested positive for the coronavirus. 

Cleveland placed Mayfield on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday when the team was on its bye week. 

Mayfield is expected to practice Wednesday with the 5-3 Browns, who reached the midway point of the season with a winning record for just the third time since 1999. They are trying to end an 18-year playoff drought.
