Report: Ravens have two more positive coronavirus tests, Steelers game still on

Report: Ravens have two more positive tests, game vs. Steelers still on originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The Baltimore Ravens have learned of two more positive coronavirus tests on Tuesday, one player and one staff member, according to multiple reports.

Baltimore's Week 12 game against the Steelers on Wednesday, though, is still set on, with the Ravens traveling to Pittsburgh Tuesday evening. Kickoff is set for 3:40 p.m.

Despite the NFL continuing to move forward with Wednesday's game - one that has been postponed already three times -, some Ravens players have expressed their concern over playing with continued positive tests within the organization, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Both of Baltimore's two new positives had reportedly already been identified as close contacts to someone who had tested positive for COVID-19.

The player who did test positive did participate in the team's walkthroughs over the past two days but reportedly maintained a safe distance from the rest of the team and no close contacts were identified. That player, of course, did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh.

Earlier on Tuesday, Baltimore activated four players from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Additionally, running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram are expected to be activated on Wednesday and eligible to play in the game versus Pittsburgh.

The Ravens will still be without a bunch of key contributors, including quarterback Lamar Jackson, pass rusher Matt Judon, defensive end Calais Campbell and tight end Mark Andrews, due to the team's outbreak over the past week and a half.
