Jedrick Wills Jr.
OT - CLE - Questionable
Week 2 Outlook
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports X-rays on Jedrick Wills' ankle came back negative.
Wills exited Sunday's opener against the Chiefs and was eventually ruled out for the game. He's considered day-to-day moving forward, which is certainly good news for Cleveland's offensive line.
Per Matt McMullen, Browns OL Jedrick Wills Jr. (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of the game against the Chiefs.
With Wills not returning, the Browns will likely turn to backup Chris Hubbard. The severity of his injury is unknown.
The Browns placed rookie OL Jedrick Willis Jr. on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Willis was deemed a high-risk close contact and didn't test positive himself, so he still has a shot at playing in Week 16. The 21-year-old was the 10th overall pick in this year's draft.
Rookie first-round pick OT Jedrick Wills Jr. has signed his four-year, $19.702M deal with the Cleveland Browns.
The contract is fully guaranteed for the dominant offensive tackle out of Alabama. Wills will also receive an $11.889M signing bonus. As with all first-round picks, his deal comes with a fifth-year team option. Wills becomes the third top-10 pick to sign his rookie deal and he will likely be called upon early in his career to protect QB Baker Mayfield.
The Cleveland Browns have selected offensive lineman Jedrick Wills with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
It was clear last season that the Browns needed help along the offensive line. Sophomore quarterback Baker Mayfield simply didn’t have the protection he needed to go through his reads. Combined with the atrocity of Freddie Kitchens’ play calling, this led to a massively disappointing 2019 season. Wills fills a huge need, however, and instantly bolsters a unit that will be asked to carry the load in new coach Kevin Stefanski’s zone-running scheme.
