The Ravens announced that their facility will remain closed for the second straight day. The Ravens learned of more positive COVID-19 tests on Tuesday morning, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic (Twitter link) hears, forcing them to work virtually in advance of Thursday night’s game against the Steelers. For now, the NFL is planning to go ahead with the game as scheduled:
“We will continue to monitor developments in consultation with our medical experts. Our foremost concern is the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel. There’s no change to the status of the game.”
The Ravens have already shelved running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins after their positive COVID-19 tests. Meanwhile, defensive tackle Brandon Williams has also been ruled out for Thursday night due to close contact. It’s not immediately clear whether the additional positive tests came from players or other Ravens staffers.
