Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has been cleared to play.

The Browns announced Wednesday morning that Mayfield had been taken off of the NFL’s coronavirus list. He’s now able to immediately return to football activities. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

He was placed on it after close contact with an individual who tested positive.

See, I told you all to relax, take a deep breath and recognize that there was a very high chance that nothing was wrong with Mayfield.

How many times have we seen players go on the list and quickly come off a few days later? The answer is a lot. Matthew Stafford was just in the same boat last week and played Sunday.

There was literally no reason at all to panic, which is almost always what I say.
