Published

on

The Steelers’ game against the Baltimore Ravens scheduled for Thursday night has been postponed to Sunday, Nov. 29 due to continued COVID-19 issues in Baltimore, the NFL announced on Wednesday.

The Ravens have placed four players on the COVID-19 reserve list this week and reportedly have more positive cases. They have not had a full in-person practice this week, closing their facility on both Monday and Tuesday.

According to Mike Garafalo of NFL Network, they would have had significant contact tracing issues if the game were to be played on Thursday. Players that are close contacts of positive cases must sit out five days, as the Steelers dealt with after Vance McDonald’s positive case before their win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The NFL did not announce a time or television network for the rescheduled game. It’s also unclear if the Steelers will host fans at the game. They had expected approximately 5,500 fans for Thursday night, but that was set to the be the final game with fans for the time being due to changes in Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s COVID-19 mitigation policy.
