This Thursday’s Thanksgiving matchup in prime time between the Steelers and Ravens is still scheduled to be played as planned, for now.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero says the NFL made the following statement Tuesday afternoon:
“We will continue to monitor developments in consultation with our medical experts. Our foremost concern is the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel. There’s no change to the status of the game”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that with an additional case reported today, Baltimore now has five players with coronavirus and four staff members.
While the game is still on, a source tells Schefter that more positive cases could mean the game is postponed.
Two of those players are running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins.
The team is not holding in-person practice Tuesday and is conducting all work virtually.
No game in the league has been postponed since Week 5, when the NFL began its “high-risk close contact protocol.”
The Steelers had one game postponed already this season against the Tennessee Titans.
