PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) — The dust hasn't even settled on the Steelers and Ravens' first postponement, but this saga might not be entirely over yet.
The Steelers-Ravens matchup was originally scheduled to take place on Thanksgiving, but an outbreak of COVID-19 in the Baltimore locker room caused the league to pivot and postpone the game.
And now the game is tentatively rescheduled for the early afternoon slot on Sunday, Nov. 29.
That might be on thin ice, too.
On Thanksgiving morning, NFL insider Jason La Canfora disclosed that more positive Covid tests had come out of the Ravens organization.
Running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins were two of the known cases from Wednesday, but as far as contact tracing, the Ravens have already disciplined a strength and conditioning coach who failed to report symptoms and did not wear a mask and tracking device consistently.
Vis a vis, the Ravens could face some sort of disciplinary action from the league itself.
La Canfora also suggested that those sanctions could lead to “fines or other punishments.”
But for now, it appears that the NFL will table any punishment until the degree of the outbreak becomes more clear.
