COVID-19 Positive Ravens Players Could Possibly Play Sunday



With the NFL moving the Pittsburgh Steelers game with the Baltimore Ravens from Thursday to Sunday, that means that Baltimore players that were identified as close contacts of positive cases on Monday or Tuesday will be able to play in the contest after five days of isolation.

It also means that there’s a small chance some of the Ravens positive players could play, as well. The only two confirmed player positives so far have been running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram.

If those players remain asymptomatic and are able to return back-to-back negative tests separated by 24 hours after sitting out five days before Sunday’s game, they will be permitted to play. If they show symptoms, they must sit out at least the full 10 days before returning.

It’s unclear exaclty how many player positives the Ravens have had at this point. They’re expected to place more players on the COVID-19 reserve list on Wednesday.
