NFL: Steelers-Ravens Game is On Despite Recent Positive Test, COVID-19 List Additions



The Ravens and Steelers are actually going to play.

Following the return of the results of point-of-care tests administered to the Baltimore Ravens’ traveling party, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy announced that Wednesday’s game will be played as currently scheduled at 3:40 p.m.

There were no positive tests returned from Baltimore’s traveling party, The Washington Post has reported.

That announcement comes in spite of the recent news that Baltimore Ravens safety Geno Stone and one staff member tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday and that Stone was in attendance for Baltimore’s walkthroughs on Monday and Tuesday.

The Steelers have also had late-in-the-week COVID-19 issues, as center Maurkice Pouncey will reportedly be placed on the COVID-19 reserve list before the game after practicing with the team on Sunday.
