Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski said Wills (ankle) requires multiple weeks of rehabilitation, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
The good news is the Wills did not suffer a serious injury in Sunday's playoff loss to the Chiefs. Cleveland's starting left tackle was injured on the first play of the game and replaced by Kendall Lamm (elbow) and then eventually Blake Hance.
Wills (ankle) was downgraded to out in Sunday's AFC divisional-round matchup against the Chiefs, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Wills was previously listed as questionable to return to Sunday's matchup, but he's confirmed out after injuring his right ankle. With two quarters left in the game, Wills' absence will hit the Browns' offensive line.

Wills limped off the field after injuring himself during the first quarter of Sunday's game. While it is unclear whether the 22-year-old will return to the matchup, Kendall Lamm and Jack Conklin will likely continue tackle duties if he's unable to rejoin the team.
Wills (illness) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Wills' illness caused him to miss Week 16's loss to the Jets, but he'll be available for Sunday's "win and in" matchup against the Steelers. The rookie left tackle stands to return to his usual starting role.
The Browns ruled Wills out for Sunday's game against the Jets due to an illness.
Though Cleveland activated the rookie first-round pick from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, the offensive tackle apparently isn't yet fit to play. On a fortunate note, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer relays that the illness Wills is dealing with isn't related to COVID-19, leaving the Browns optimistic he won't miss much time beyond Sunday's game. Even so, Wills' absence is yet another hit to a Browns offense that already had four receivers ruled out for Week 16 a day earlier due to COVID-19 protocols. Kendall Lamm is slated to start at left tackle in Wills' stead.
Wills (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.
The 21-year-old landed on the COVID list earlier in the week as a high-risk close contact of an infected individual, but he worked through the league's protocols with no issue. Wills is set to start at left tackle Sunday for the Browns, per usual.
Wills was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Wills is considered a close contact due to a charity event that took place Tuesday. If he continues to test negative, the rookie out of Alabama will be available to start at left tackle in Sunday's game against the Jets.
Wills (shin) is active for Thursday's contest against the Bengals, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
Wills was forced out of Cleveland's loss to Baltimore in Week 1 due to a shin injury, but he's already recovered enough to suit up for Thursday Night Football. The rookie first-round pick will start at left tackle against Cincinnati.

Wills suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Ravens and failed to return in the second half. The X-ray's on the Alabama product's knee returned negative, however, so there's doubt on his status for Thursday. JC Tretter (knee), Jack Conklin (ankle/finger) and Jedrick Wills (shin) also are dealing with injurys, so it's unclear how the offensive line will look for Thursday's contest.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said it's too early to tell if Wills will be available for Thursday's game against the Bengals, though X-rays on the rookie's knee returned negative, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Wills left early in his NFL debut Sunday in the Browns' 38-6 loss to the Ravens, but it's a good sign that there's no structural damage. The rookie first-rounder is still sore, however, so Kendall Lamm is on standby in case Wills can't play Thursday.
Wills suffered a leg injury in the team's Week 1 contest against the Bengals, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Wills exited late in the contest, and with the game out of hand, he will have his eye on a return for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Bengals on Thursday. If Wills was forced to miss that game, Kendall Lamm will likely take over at left tackle. A silver lining for Wills is that postgame X-rays came back negative, per George M. Thomas of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski is committed to starting Wills at left tackle for the season opener against the Ravens, Marla Ridenour of the Akron-Beacon Journal reports.
Stefanski reinforced his decision to transition Wills from the right side to the left despite what has been a difficult transition.

Wills is making progress in his transition from right to left tackle, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Wills, the 10th overall pick in the 2020 draft, was a right tackle at the University of Alabama, but the Browns drafted him to play left tackle. "He started out a little slow early on just getting the tempo and the timing of the pass rushes, but he's getting better every day," offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said of Wills. "That's what we're looking for is for that arrow to continue to trend up. We knew we were going to have some growing pains moving him from right to left, but at the same point we know he has the ability to get it done." Wells is getting top-notch preparation in practice, lining up against defensive ends Olivier Vernon and Myles Garrett. That has given Wells experience against elite pass-rushers and knowledge of how to combat certain moves.
Wills agreed Tuesday with the Browns on a fully guaranteed, four-year rookie contract, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
