The Baltimore Ravens boarded a plane and took off for Pittsburgh Tuesday night to finally play their game against the Steelers on Wednesday, but not without more COVID drama.
The Ravens had two more positive tests on Tuesday, according to multiple reprots, although it is not expected to have any impact on the status of Wednesday’s game.
Per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the tests were a player and staffer, neither of whom traveled with the team. The player was at the team’s walkthrough, but no high-risk contacts were identified as the team reportedly maintained distance at the walkthrough.
The NFL also told the Ravens that these two individuals were previously identified as potential positives and there was no concern fo further spread.
Despite the fact that everything seems to be relatively OK, some Ravens players had previously expressed concern over the situation and are privately doing this evening, according to Garafolo.
Earlier in the day, the Ravens actually removed four more players from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and did not add any others.
The game between the Ravens and Steelers has been postponed three times already after originally being scheduled for Thanksgiving night.
Wednesday’s kickoff at Heinz Field is scheduled for 3:40 p.m. ET.
