The Cleveland Browns will have quarterback Baker Mayfield and star pass rusher Myles Garrett available for their game Saturday afternoon at Green Bay.

Mayfield wasn’t listed among the Browns players inactive for Saturday’s game. That comes one day after the Browns activated him from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Mayfield was among about a dozen Browns starters who didn’t play in a 16-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday because they were on the reserve/COVID-19 list. But they will have Garrett available after he’d been listed as questionable due to a groin injury.

Along with Mayfield returning, the Browns will break in a brand new kicker against the Packers and will be much closer to full strength.

Rookie Chris Naggar was elevated from the practice squad to kick against the Packers.

Struggling Chase McLaughlin, who has missed five of his last 11 field-goal tries including a critical 47-yarder in the 16-14 loss to the Raiders, was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list shortly before departed Cleveland.

McLaughlin’s job appeared in jeopardy after his crucial miss, but Stefanski was planning to stick with him before his positive test.

Also, the Browns activated top wide receiver Jarvis Landry, backup QB Case Keenum, cornerback A.J. Green and defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo.

Saturday’s game will be the Browns’ attempt to bolster their flimsy playoff chances.
