The Baltimore Ravens held virtual team activities on Tuesday amid an NFL Network report of 10 confirmed new positive COVID-19 tests in the organization, leaving the status of the club’s scheduled Thursday game at Pittsburgh uncertain.
The Ravens closed, and then reopened, their team facility on Monday following positive COVID-19 tests involving running backs Mark Ingram and rookie J.K. Dobbins. Defensive tackle Brandon Williams was deemed a close contact, and all three players were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
An NFL Network report indicated that 10 positive cases among Ravens players and other personnel prompted the league to closely monitor the situation. A decision on whether to play the Thanksgiving night game against the Steelers reportedly will be determined by the NFL on Wednesday.
“With the health and safety of players and staff remaining the highest priority, the Baltimore Ravens have determined that all further team activities will be conducted virtually today,” the team said in a statement Tuesday.
The Ravens (6-4) are coming off a 30-24 overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. The Steelers, the NFL’s lone unbeaten team at 10-0, routed the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-3 last weekend.
Baltimore started the season 5-1 before dropping three of their past four games.
Cornerback Marlon Humphrey tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month.
