Six Ravens removed from Reserve/Covid-19 list
The Baltimore Ravens activated six players from the Reserve/Covid-19 list on Saturday, one day before they take on the Colts in Indianapolis.
Inside linebackers Patrick Queen, L.J. Fort and Malik Harrison, outside linebacker Tyus Bowser, safety DeShon Elliott and practice squad cornerback Terrell Bonds were taken off the list, although Fort was ruled out for Sunday’s game with a finger injury.
They were originally added to the Reserve/Covid-19 list due to close contact with All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday.
The players were required to remain asymptomatic and pass five consecutive days of testing before they could participate in Saturday’s walkthrough and potentially play Sunday.
Another close contact of Humphrey, starting outside linebacker Matthew Judon, was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday.
All the self-isolating players participated virtually in the team’s meetings and workouts from home and head coach John Harbaugh is hoping they will be ready to go.
“Well, I think we’ll find that out,” Harbaugh said Friday. “It’s impossible to predict that. You see guys, sometimes they don’t practice all week and they come out and play the best games of their career. Other guys struggle or might miss something. I don’t spend a lot of time being anxious about that because it’s really a waste of time.”
Humphrey is the first Ravens player to test positive for the coronavirus.
