Mitchell (personal) will play in Sunday's wild-card round game against the Steelers.
Mitchell missed Friday's practice after what turned out to be a false positive COVID-19 test. He has tested negative since and gotten clearance to play, and Mitchell should play an increased role in a Cleveland secondary that will be without top cornerback Denzel Ward (reserve/COVID-19).
Mitchell (personal) remains questionable but is expected to play Sunday against the Steelers, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Mitchell was held out of practice Friday with what a source said was a positive test for COVID-19, but he tested negative Saturday and was also deemed false positive. His availability is an issue, as Cleveland will be without top cornerback Denzel Ward (reserve/COVID-19) and Kevin Johnson (reserve/COVID-19). Mitchell is now considered questionable but is expected to play.
Mitchell (personal) is questionable for Sunday's wild-card round game against the Steelers, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
Mitchell's questionable designation isn't injury-related, though the exact reason for his inclusion on the injury report is unknown. If Mitchell's unable to suit up Sunday, Tavierre Thomas would be in line for a larger role in Cleveland's undermanned cornerback corps.
Mitchell posted 12 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's 49-38 win over the Cowboys.
Mitchell led the Browns in tackles since Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott attempted 58 passes Sunday, but the cornerback's coverage has been decent this season. Through four games, Mitchell has allowed a 99.1 passer rating while filling in for Greedy Williams (shoulder). Mitchell will likely maintain a consistent role even when Williams returns, but he's probably not worth an add in IDP formats with Sunday's numbers considered an anomaly.
Mitchell (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against Washington, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Mitchell was a full participant during Thursday's practice, so this news isn't quite a surprise. With Greedy Williams (shoulder) officially inactive for the contest, Mitchell is in line to take over the starting job at one of the cornerback positions.
Mitchell (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Marla Ridenour of The Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Mitchell has been sidelined since Monday due to a knee injury, but the cornerback is back out on the field taking reps alongside his teammates.

Mitchell is one of a rapidly expanding list of injured cornerbacks for the Browns. He joins Kevin Johnson (abdomen), Greedy Williams (shoulder) and M.J. Stewart (hamstring) on the sidelines.
Mitchell recorded 21 tackles, three passes defensed and one interception over 15 games in 2019.
Mitchell had significant run early in the season when Cleveland dealt with injuries to its starting cornerback duo of Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams. Once those two returned, Mitchell's playing time took a drastic hit. He has one year remaining on a three-year deal signed in 2018. With Ward and Williams, who were high-round draft picks the last two years, returning in 2020, Mitchell is looking at a depth role.
Mitchell will start at cornerback against the Seahawks on Sunday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Mitchell will start at cornerback in Sunday's tilt against Carolina, Pat McManamon of ESPN.com reports.
Mitchell was placed on the active roster Saturday and will be thrust right back into the fold Sunday, drawing the start in place of rookie Denzel Ward (concussion). It's unclear if Mitchell will see a typical starter's share of snaps or if he'll be limited in his first game since being activated from injured reserve. Look for Tavierre Thomas to see some extra snaps if Mitchell's role is limited in his return.
Mitchell (wrist) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.
It's unclear as to whether Mitchell will play in Sunday's game against the Panthers. Mitchell has been working with the practice squad over the last four weeks, but the Browns have not explicitly stated any plans for the 26-year-old.
Mitchell (wrist) will return from injured reserve Week 14, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Mitchell was placed on injured reserve Oct. 2 after undergoing surgery on his broken wrist. It was initially thought that the fifth-year pro would miss the remainder of the 2018 season, but Mitchell has progressed quickly in his recovery and is expected to return prior to Sunday's tilt against the Panthers. It remains to be seen whether Mitchell will be able to suit up Week 14, but his presence would be a notable boon to the Browns' secondary if Denzel Ward (concussion) is unable to go.
Mitchell (wrist) was designated for return from injured reserve and will practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Mitchell was placed on IR on Oct. 2 after undergoing surgery to repair a broken wrist. Nearly six weeks later, the cornerback is on the mend and should be activated when first eligible Dec. 9 against the Panthers if he experiences no setbacks upon returning to practice.
Mitchell (wrist) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, according to the team's official site.
Mitchell underwent surgery Monday after suffering a broken wrist in Sunday's contest with the Raiders, and though it was originally thought he would miss the remainder of the season, head coach Hue Jackson relayed that there's a chance Mitchell can return. Mitchell -- who had two forced fumbles and an interception -- will be replaced E.J. Gaines and TJ Carrie. Defensive back Jeremiah McKinnon was also promoted from Cleveland's practice squad to provide depth.
Mitchell underwent surgery Monday to repair a broken right wrist and head coach Hue Jackson said that he doesn't believe it is season-ending, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
It was originally believed that the injury Mitchell suffered would be season-ending, but there appears to be some optimism coming from the Browns. Mitchell is still likely out for an extended period of time, but if his recovery goes well, the defensive back could be back for the final stretch of the regular season. Both E.J. Gaines and TJ Carrie are in line to see additional snaps at cornerback in Mitchell's absence.
Coach Hue Jackson acknowledged that the broken right forearm Mitchell sustained in Sunday's 45-42 overtime loss to the Raiders could end the cornerback's season, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
Mitchell went down in the first half of Sunday's game with the injury, which will almost certainly sideline him for multiple weeks even if surgery isn't deemed necessary. It's expected that Mitchell will be placed on injured reserve within the next few days, though he could be designated as one of two players eligible to return after eight weeks if the Browns determine his injury isn't of the season-ending variety. Mitchell had been a serviceable IDP option with 19 stops, three pass breakups, two forced fumbles, one interception and one fumble recovery through the first four games, so his absence will be a costly one for the Cleveland secondary. E.J. Gaines and TJ Carrie will likely see enhanced roles at cornerback in Mitchell's stead.
Mitchell fractured his forearm during Sunday's 45-42 loss to the Raiders, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Mitchell was replaced by T.J. Carrie, who will likely slot into the lineup as Cleveland's starting right cornerback for the foreseeable future. A recovery timetable for Mitchell has yet to be disclosed, but injuries of this nature can take up to eight weeks to fully heal. The 26-year-old's injury is a substantial blow to the Browns' secondary.
Mitchell (wrist) will not return to Sunday's game against the Raiders.
It seemed fairly obvious Mitchell would not return when he left on a cart with his arm in a cast, but now it's official. T.J. Carrie will continue to hold down the fort in the Oregon product's absence.
