Report: NFL postpones Ravens’ Monday a.m. practice
The NFL postponed the Baltimore Ravens’ practice Monday morning, ESPN reported.
Players were gathering at the team’s indoor practice facility for a walk-through ahead of Tuesday night’s rescheduled game at Pittsburgh when they got the word at about 9:25 a.m. ET.
The league postponed the practice to Monday afternoon, at the earliest, per the report.
The Ravens have not practiced since Saturday, Nov. 21, the day before a 30-24 overtime loss against the Tennessee Titans and a subsequent outbreak of the coronavirus within the organization.
Multiple outlets reported that wide receiver Willie Snead tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday, making it eight straight days with at least one positive test for the team. Snead is the seventh projected starter to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Tight end Mark Andrews and outside linebacker Matthew Judon, both Pro Bowl selections last season, tested positive for the virus on Saturday, ESPN reported, bringing the Ravens’ total to 22 players on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
At least eight staff members also have tested positive.
Quarterback Lamar Jackson and running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins are among those on the list.
The outbreak in Baltimore forced the NFL to move the initially scheduled game between the Steelers (10-0) and the Ravens (6-4) from Thanksgiving night to Sunday afternoon to now Tuesday night. NBC will televise the game, set for 8 p.m. ET.
If this game does take place on Tuesday, the NFL will move the Ravens’ Week 13 game as well.
