Ravens Place 6 More On Reserve/COVID-19 List

The Ravens now have 20 players on their reserve/COVID-19 list. A day after practice squad tackle Will Holden‘s positive COVID-19 test, Baltimore now has nearly a third of its active-roster/P-squad players on the coronavirus list.

Slot corner Tavon Young (already on IR), edge rusher Jaylon Ferguson, guard D.J. Fluker, rookie defensive back Khalil Dorsey and rookie defensive lineman Broderick Washington joined Holden and 14 others on the team’s virus list Saturday.

Beyond Holden, it is not known if any of the other players involved in these latest COVID-related roster moves tested positive for COVID-19. But the timing of Holden’s positive test could make each of the four additional non-IR players included here unavailable for Tuesday’s game against the Steelers. Should the Ravens’ virus list expand much further, the NFL will have to postpone this game beyond Week 12.

The league has pushed this game back twice already. A third time would almost certainly mean triggering one of the two contingency plans. A makeup Week 18 window is believed to be the league’s Plan B, with Plan C being the 16-team playoff bracket that would stem from canceled regular-season games. Plan C going into effect would mean the first unbalanced NFL regular season (in terms of games played) since 1935.

    I may be off on the posts & updates, but it seems a Baltimore staff broke protocol, brought in the virus, forcing the Pit/Balt game to be delayed twice & now Pit’s RB has it but it’s game on? Only Goodell could offer such inconsistency.

    Here’s an idea: since it’s already established that teams that cause a cancelled game will be fined and possibly lose draft picks, how about giving the draft pick to the other impacted team. Either that or that lost pick needs to be high—1st or 2nd rounder

    20 players on covid list…. will they even have enough for a full 54? Can’t imagine practices.
