There are reportedly more positive COVID-19 tests in the Ravens organization.

Shortly after the Ravens announced that they will be working virtually for the second straight day, Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com reported that the team learned of more positive tests on Tuesday. It is not known if those positive tests were for players, coaches, or other team personnel.

Running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram will not play against the Steelers on Thursday night after testing positive. Defensive tackle Brandon Williams is also out as a close contact.

Any players who tested positive in this round would also have to miss the game and the Ravens would have to do another round of contact tracing to see if any other players are impacted.

  1. They don’t want the Steelers on a short week, just like colleges don’t want to face Clemson.

  2. Contact tracing is simple. Don’t waste time on it. Here is the result and you can thank me later – All of the people who were on the Ravens sideline and the entire Titans players and staff

  3. I knew this would happen. There is no way that only 1 player who did not even play was the only person in close contact. I am sure now that Whinebaugh will ask to postpone this game which I guess is the safest thing to do for the Steelers’ sake.

  4. Yes, Stu, they intentionally caught Covid on a short week so they could play the Steelers without like 7-8 starters just so they can have an excuse. Good call. Solid critical thinking.

  5. At this rate the NFL will have to reduce the season to 14 games to maintain any chance of a competitive playoff.

    Sure, people want to get a severe illness just so they don’t have to play a football game. It’s always fun to jawl with Stoolers fans, but this as to be one of the most ridiculous responses ever.

  7. This is a mess the NFL does not want to deal with this week. They either have to put the Ravens in a really bad position and possibly exacerbate the breakout, or cancel a primetime game that would probably be in the 20 million+ viewer range (and possible pull the trigger on adding week 18).
    They really can’t delay the decision too much at this point.

  8. Does the nfl think we are stupid? Look at all the tests magically happening after games but not on game day. Wow. This virus must be a big nfl fan!

  9. Time for an “investigation”.

    Why did the NFL send “investigators” to Foxborough for Newton and won’t send any after Marioon Humphrey was sick and still played 2 weeks ago when they are so many positives?

    Hmmm.

    I wonder how Goodell’s round of golf was with Bisciotti at Augusta last week?

    Not the point. Your team has been caught cheating 3 times in 2 years. The media buries the stories like Blue Tooth Guy and how Whinebaugh is on the Competition Committee.

    And now this, where Humphrey was sick 2 weeks ago and they still played him.

    Your move, Cheater Fan.

  11. tylawpick6 now touchback6 wants to shed the Patriots are cheaters label so badly he’s making things up. How is it exactly they cheated with Humphrey?

  12. Mark my words …. there is going to soon come a day when the NFL just flat out runs out of luck.

  13. Estimated 50 million people traveling for holidays. No way to contain this so start forfeiting games to teams that can’t field a team and limp through the season.

  14. It’s really stupid of the NFL not to have a week 18 in the year of covid. Why? Who doesn’t want more football?

  15. Well if we just went about our business last year instead of going into lockdown for political purposes this would all be behind us by now, but certain agendas were at play, and here we are a full year later still waiting for the Covid peak

    The Pats have never cheated, as we’ve learned after the fact. That’s first and foremost. I don’t care about “labels” from jealous morons.

    Second, the Ravens have been punished twice in a wimpy way by Goodell with little fines in the last 3 years, and Blue Tooth Guy went completely uninvestigated, not to mention the violation never even got any kind of a fine when everyone knows team personnel can’t use personal communication on the sideline, and it just so happens Jackson has regressed since then, which is incredibly suspicious. Got it? Good.

    Pats fans just want fairness, transparency and honesty. No one cares about shedding labels created by gullible morons in this country. Intelligent people know the truth.

    Humphrey had an “illness” 2 Wednesdays ago and still played and now all of a sudden Balt has all these breakouts. That’s how cheated…Brazenly breaking protocols…AGAIN.
