The last week has been a tough one for the Baltimore Ravens. After what looked like a few coronavirus cases turned into a full blown outbreak, you started t get the feeling the odds of them playing the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday night was an extreme long shot.
While the prime time game Tuesday is anything but certain, there is at least some good news to report.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, after the Ravens’ latest round of testing Saturday, no new cases have been found.
As of this morning, there have been nine Ravens players and eight staffers who have tested positive in the past week, per sources. There were no new positives on Saturday.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 29, 2020
The Ravens-Steelers game for Tuesday night is still on, and the NFL intends to have it played, per sources.
This could all change quickly, and the Ravens’ outbreak the past seven days has been an example of just that, but this news is the first good news the NFL has received heading into the Week 12 game.
The game happening is important, but what it will look like is a completely different story.
The Ravens will be without almost every high profile player on their roster, while the Steelers will be without Stephon Tuitt and James Conner, among others.
No, it won’t be your typical Steelers vs. Ravens game, but at this point the NFL has to be ecstatic if they can get the game in and turn the page to Week 13.
Be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they prepare for the Ravens in prime time Tuesday night.
Schefter now says the Ravens have 2 new positive cases from Saturday’s testing. Seems we are not out of the woods yet.
