The Tuesday night game scheduled between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers hangs in the balance as the Ravens await their latest round of testing results.
The Ravens cancelled their scheduled practice on Monday after more positive tests came back on Sunday, including starting wide receiver Willie Snead. They could still practice this evening after getting test results back, which have typically come in around 5 p.m.
They could also practice Tuesday morning before traveling to Pittsburgh for the night game, though snow in the forecast could throw a wrench in the idea of traveling on the day of the game. They could also travel to Pittsburgh Tuesday morning and practice at Heinz Field early before the game.
If more Baltimore players test positive on Monday, which would be the team’s ninth consecutive day of positive cases, that could be a body blow for the chances of Tuesday’s game being played.
The Steelers, not without COVID-19 issues of their own, are expected to hold a walkthrough on Monday after getting no new positive tests on Sunday. One Steelers player and two staff members tested positive on Saturday and four other players are on the COVID-19 list.
The Ravens currently have 23 players on the COVID-19 list, including starters at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, offensive line, defensive line, and linebacker.
Kickoff is currently scheduled for 8 p.m. at Heinz Field on Tuesday.
