Report: Ravens safety Geno Stone tested positive on Tuesday

USA Today Sports

Initial reports on Tuesday indicated that the Ravens had no new positive tests. Subsequent reports pointed to one positive result for a player, and one for a staff member.

The latest report, from the Baltimore Sun, is that safety Geno Stone tested positive.

Stone, who wasn’t already on the COVID-19 reserve list due to close contact with others who have the virus, presumably participated in the Monday and Tuesday walk-through practices. On Tuesday, he was likely shedding virus during practice and in the facility.

Stone obviously didn’t make the trip to Pittsburgh. The players who did will have point-of-care testing on Wednesday morning. The daily PCR test results likely won’t be returned before the conclusion of Wednesday’s game, which begins at 3:40 p.m. ET.

The consequences for any potential POC positives on Wednesday remain to be seen. Currently, it seems highly unlikely that anything would prevent the game from proceeding.

  1. I don’t get it. They have tests that take about 15 minutes to get a result, although not completely accurate. Why not give that test to every Raven, and if any come back positive then give them another one immediately?

  2. They better fine this team the same amount they fined the Raiders and take away the same draft pick

  3. If there was a giant asteroid 5 hours away, on a direct impact course with earth, the NFL would move the game up 3 hours to make sure it was played.

  4. Hypocrites. Postpone or a Baltimore forfeit. I can’t believe in December I’m saying this but teams need to be held accountable for not taking this disease more seriously. Let the lawyers wrangle over who gets paid & who doesn’t but that big forfeit L will certainly make others sit up a little straighter.

  5. The Ravens are a joke. They let Covid run rampant then threatened to strike to have more time. What now? Will they postpone the game again after this latest result? I’m sure Harbaugh will find something to whine about. He should be embarrassed about how his team has ignored the virus protocols and caused this situation. Hopefully the NFL gives them harsher punishments than what happened to the Raiders.

  6. time for baltimore to forfeit. this isnt fair to the steelers exposing them to this risk and ruining the rest of their season.

  7. The games will go on. TV is calling the shots behind the scenes. Lives have to go on. Paychecks have to be issued. I doubt very much that anyone coming here to comment would turn down money if it was available to be earned.

  8. I am going to guess they did. A positive test has to meet a certain threshold to be detected. The virus could have been present but it takes times to replicate and multiply and that will vary from person to person.

  9. What is it Godel does not see as more and more Ravens are positive. Make them forfeit possibly save more and more players from testing positive, not the end for Baltimore. Some accountability needs to be had by the Ravens. Other teams have to be shaking their heads on the inability of the league office to hold some accountability

  10. The Ravens are playing the most epic game of chicken that the sporting world has ever seen. Think you can beat them? Prove it.

    If they don’t win on the field, they’ll take your team down for a couple weeks in the process.

  11. The first move I could maybe understand since they were still trying to figure out how far the outbreak had spread but they never should have moved it a second time and the Ravens should have been forced to play Sunday doing what the Broncos did, filling in with practice squad players or guys playing out of position. The message being sent is that if you have a little bit of a Covid problem, tough luck, even if it means you’re playing a WR as the QB but if you let a big outbreak occur you can string things along until you’re basically back to full strength.

  12. a football game on a Wednesday at 3:30pm with no fans….reminds me of freshman year in HS 🙂

  13. The NFL evidently decides which games are too important to cancel and which don’t matter. The poor Broncos were forced to play without even one quarterback.

    But the Steelers and Baltimore weren’t forced to play. DOes the NFL use a dartboard to determine which teams play and which teams get rescheduled?

    The NFL does everything in its power to coddle the Ravens. Their darlings never get punished for anything and Goodell even helps cover up things for them. See ray lewis and ray rice. If this were any other team, the games wouldve been cancelled and team fined very heavily. In this case, the ravens chose when their games are moved to to allow most of their players to return and will receive no fines. Glad the Ravens favoritism is coming to light for all to see.

  16. All the Steeler fans talking trash will soon find out the Steelers just put their center on the COVID list…

  17. Stop with the forfeit talk. Neither teams players get paid on a forfeit. It’s not happening. I expect the game to be played today. The Steelers must be thrilled since they got their rest/bye week back that was lost because of the Titans situation earlier in the season.

    Just heard Pouncey tested positive. Go figure.

    If you’re watching the Ravens game, now, you would know that the refs missed a delay of game call on the Steeler (hurts the Ravens) that could have resulted in a Raven’s TD.

    So it doesn’t look like Goodell told the refs to favor the Ravens.
