The Baltimore Ravens announced today that multiple members of the organization tested positive for COVID-19 and they have shut down their facility. The team learned of the positive tests late last night and has been communicating with the league. All team activities will be done virtually until further notice.


If the NFL finds any high-risk close contacts among the Ravens, they are required to self-isolate for five days, which would leave them unable to play or coach Thursday.


As of now, Thursday night's game between the Steelers and Ravens remains on as scheduled, per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.


Ravens' running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins have tested positive for COVID-19 and will be placed on the reserve list later today, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network. Gus Edwards will get the start at running back for Baltimore.


John Harbaugh confirmed that Ingram and Dobbins tested positive and have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Harbaugh said contract tracing has been completed and nose tackle Brandon Williams will have to quarantine for five days and was also placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Ravens' facility has been reopened after being closed this morning.
