Jackson is at least the 11th Baltimore player to test positive for COVID-19 during the team’s current outbreak that caused the postponement of its game with the Pittsburgh Steelers from Thursday to Sunday.
The reigning NFL MVP, Jackson has thrown for 1,948 yards, rushed for 575 yards and contributed 18 total touchdowns for the Ravens this season.
Because of the late date of his positive test in the week, Jackson will be ineligible for the rescheduled game between the Steelers and Ravens on Sunday.
Jackson’s back up is veteran former starter Robert Griffin III.
