This morning, Ravens' cornerback Marlon Humphrey posted on Twitter that he has tested positive for coronavirus, a day after Baltimore's, 28-24, loss to the Steelers.


“I got the Rona hopefully I’ll be back healthy soon,” Humphrey tweeted.


Humphrey did not practice last Wednesday with what the Ravens described as an “illness.” Humphrey played in every defensive snap for the Ravens against the Steelers.


The Steelers were informed this morning by the league that a Ravens player tested positive for COVID-19. That Ravens player was Humphrey, but a name wasn't disclosed by the league.


"This morning, the NFL informed us that a Baltimore Ravens player tested positive for COVID-19, said Burt Lauten, who is the director of communications for the Steelers. "Our results from Sunday's testing have all come back negative. We will follow the NFL's Intensive Protocols and take precautionary measures at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex to ensure the safety of our players, coaches and staff remain our highest priority."
