As both teams continued in preparation while waiting determination if the Baltimore Ravens could travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers on Tuesday night, it has been reported by ESPN’s Dan Graziano that the NFL has given the Ravens clearance to travel for the game.

Awaiting the results from Monday morning’s COVID-19 testing, only one player returned a positive case for the Ravens. The player in question, Terrell Bonds, is currently on the teams Reserve/Injured List and has not been around the team to where there would be any concern over a close contact situation.

As Graziano followed up, the Ravens are currently discussing their options when it comes to playing on Tuesday night. Since the NFL has deemed the situation safe, failing to show up and play the game as an organization would come with serious consequences.

While the Ravens were down to 49 available players between their active roster and practice squad, there were four players activated off of the teams Reserve/COVID-19 List who will be available to play Tuesday. Additionally, the Steelers activated two players from their Covid list in Kevin Dotson and Isaiah Buggs.

For fans looking to see if Tuesday’s game was going to be postponed, it appears the NFL will not be the one moving the game to another time. The Baltimore Ravens have the option of flying out to Pittsburgh tonight or early on Tuesday in order to play the prime time matchup.
