A Ravens player has tested positive for the coronavirus and has begun self quarantining, Baltimore announced Thursday morning.
According to the team, it has entered the NFL’s intensive protocol procedures, however there were no high-risk contacts around the unidentified player who tested positive, meaning no other players or staff members are required to isolate.
Baltimore announced Wednesday that cornerback Marlon Humphrey had been activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list after a 10-day quarantine. Humphrey had tested positive following the Ravens’ loss to the Steelers almost two weeks ago, and a slew of defensive players were deemed close contacts and were placed on the COVID-19 list as a precaution.
Those other players did not test positive and returned after a five-day period to play last week against the Colts.
It remains to be seen how this latest positive test will impact Baltimore, which plays the Patriots on Sunday night. Earlier in the NFL season, positive cases led to schedule adjustments, such as a New England-Kansas City game being moved to a Monday night.
However, last week the Packers and 49ers had positive cases. They met as scheduled on Thursday night, anyway.
