The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a huge Week 8 road win over the Baltimore Ravens, but it seems the win might linger with the team for all the wrong reasons.
Monday after the game, Ravens’ Pro Bowl cornerback Marlon Humphrey took to his verified Twitter account to announce he has tested positive for COVID-19.
This per Field Yates of ESPN:

The diagnosis might seem insignificant to the Steelers, but it could equate to a change of plans for the Steelers leading into their Week 9 trip to Dallas to play the Cowboys.
At this time, the Steelers are in the clear and aren’t showing any players to test positive as of yet.
