Positive COVID-19 tests for Ravens players and others in the organization in recent days led to the closure of the team’s facility on Tuesday, but it has not altered plans for them to face the Steelers on Thursday night.

There could be changes to the Ravens’ plans for getting to Pittsburgh, however. The team is scheduled to fly to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, but another option is reportedly on the table.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team could fly to Pittsburgh on Thursday and then face the Steelers at 8:20 p.m. ET.¬†That alteration to the schedule may only be on the table if the Ravens’ schedule for Wednesday’s preparations are scrapped because of more positive test results. There’s no word on how Tuesday’s round of testing went at this point.

Due to positive tests or close contact, the Ravens know they will be without running back J.K. Dobbins, running back Mark Ingram, linebacker Pernell McPhee, and defensive tackle Brandon Williams for Thursday’s game.

  1. I know that Pgh is rocking-and-rolling and the Raven’s are floundering, but this is exactly the type of game that the Steelers lose. As a Steeler fan I have much respect for the Ravens and expect this game to be a lot closer than people realize.

    No Steelers fan is taking this game for granted.

    The fans aren’t playing the game, but I don’t think the team is falling to the typical stereotypes this year.

  3. These teams match up well, regardless of how well or bad the other team is playing. Expect a close game, as usual.

  4. Pittsburgh is clearly the better team this year, but on top of that the run-based Ravens are missing their top two running backs, most of their starting O-line most of their starting D-line and didn’t get to practice at all after a short week. Might be able to all overcome that if the secondary could tackle, but this year, they don’t seem to be doing that. My guess is this seems like a close game for a while but then the Steelers roll away with it.
