This is the second postponement for the Steelers-Ravens game, as the game was originally scheduled for last night, but a COVID-19 outbreak within the Ravens' organization has caused the league to delay the game.
It was reported last night that Lamar Jackson tested positive for COVID-19. Jackson is the eighth Ravens' player in the last week to test positive for the virus. Prior to Jackson testing positive, Baltimore placed eight players on the reserve/COVID-19 list since Monday -- running back Mark Ingram, running back J.K. Dobbins, nose tackle Brandon Williams (close contact), outside linebacker Pernell McPhee, defensive end Calais Campbell, offensive lineman Matt Skura, offensive lineman Patrick Mekari and defensive end Jihad Ward.
The Ravens added Jackson to the reserve/COVID-19 list today, along with fullback Patrick Ricard, defensive end Justin Madubukie and long snapper Morgan Cox. Bringing the Ravens' total to 12 players on the reserve COVID-19 list since Monday.
The league announced that the Ravens-Cowboys originally scheduled for Dec. 3 on Thursday night has been moved to Monday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. on Fox. With the Steelers-Ravens game moved to Tuesday, the Steelers will have four days to prepare for the Washington Football Team, who will have nine days to prepare for the Steelers after playing yesterday afternoon against the Dallas Cowboys. It will be interesting to see whether the league keeps the Steelers-Washington game at it's scheduled time, which is Sunday, Dec. 6. at 1 p.m.
