Ravens receiver Willie Snead tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports. He will become the seventh projected starter on the team’s offense to go on the reserve COVID-19 list this week.

It marks the eighth consecutive day the Ravens have had at least one positive test.

Snead, the team’s third-leading receiver, is the first Ravens’ receiver to test positive this week. The Ravens signed Dez Bryant from the practice squad Saturday.

Snead made 17 catches for 230 yards and two touchdowns the past four games. The rest of the team’s wideouts combined had 19 catches for 217 yards and two touchdowns over the past four games.

Quarterback Lamar Jackson, running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins, tight end Mark Andrews and linebacker Matthew Judon are among the many Ravens on the COVID-19 list.

The Ravens twice have had their game against the Steelers postponed. They currently still are scheduled to play Tuesday, but that game certainly is hanging in the balance now.

  1. This really isn’t shocking. Just watching the games on TV it’s obvious most NFL players don’t understand the mask is supposed to go over your nose…

  2. They better play this game. After watching the Broncos get screwed today, I don’t want to hear anything about fairness. That was the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. They were forced to use a wide receiver off the practice squad who had never even practiced with the team. How does the NFL justify this? They could have delayed the game one day but refused. It’s obvious the NFL wants to decide who is in the playoffs this year. For those of you that want to blame the QBs for not wearing masks, there is video of the QB meeting showing they were all wearing masks.

  3. Dock Baltimore 4 first round draft picks, and fine them $10 million. They are a total disgrace

  4. Yet they are having players come into their practice area today. WOW When do the fines come for the Ravens had no problem going after the Raiders

  5. Why do people keep comparing to Broncos? This is an ongoing outbreak for both ravens and Steelers. Daily continued positives are the issue. Not the quality of those players.

    Steelers outbreak nothing like Ravens , you can’t compare the two look at the numbers

  7. wow. Of course the health of the players comes first and always should. But i believe we can forget about the playoffs. We dont know when we will be able to field a team. One more and we will have to forfeit, what a season! What a Year!

  8. I don’t know. I kind of get the feeling that the games from here on out will be played if it’s deemed safe to do so. There will be no postponements based on who or who isn’t available to play. The league may be trying to make a point with the teams that are not following protocol, even ones that have not yet had any substantial issues with C19. In other words, tighten up, there won’t be any bailouts. IMO

  9. Doesn’t matter who the Ravens suit up. We all know the Steelers are weak and we’re going to lose this game anyway.

    Best team in the league is weak? What does that say about your squad?

  11. guitarKevin thinks the Titanic would have a chance in this game. With Lamar Jax & RG III, the Ravens now have the two biggest failures in the history of running/read-option QB’s.

  12. 2020 sports are a crapshoot. Every team just has to deal with whatever happens in this unprecedented situation. I don’t care who wins or loses, I just want to be entertained. I’ll get more invested again when things go back to some semblance of normalcy. Hopefully that’ll be in 2021.

  13. Jgammel not comparing the two but the Steelers positives probably.contributed to the postponement to some degree of either Thursday or Sunday depending on the day. is all I an insinuating. It was close to a game day and the Broncos had no new cases from either team after the one. Just not the same story.

  14. If I am harbaugh I just take a knee every play. They literally don’t have 5 oline. Zero TE’s. 1 person from the front 7 on defense. 3 remaining starters on offense. Like 5 starters on defense. No team with beat any nfl team with that kind of roster.
