Thanks to third delay, the Ravens will get two huge offensive players back vs. the Steelers

The Baltimore Ravens have delayed the inevitable long enough to get two huge offensive stars back for Week 12.

If there are Baltimore Ravens fans looking for sympathy surrounding this Week 12 game vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers, they might want to stay way from posting on social media for the foreseeable future.

Why?

Thanks to the outbreak within the Ravens’ locker room, and the threatening of a strike to play on Tuesday, the Ravens will get the two players who were the first to go on the Reserve/COVID-19 List back for the Wednesday game vs. the Steelers in Week 12.

The players? Running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram.

Due to it being past the 10-day incubation period, if either Dobbins or Ingram has been negative for that duration they will be eligible to return to the team.

Just. In. Time.

This per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

So, while the Steelers still have a clear advantage going against the Ravens without the likes of Lamar Jackson, Mark Andrews, Willie Snead and Calais Campbell, they now will have to deal with a two-headed monster at running back due to the delays.

Not that the Steelers needed any extra motivation, but this likely just adds fuel to the fire for the 10-0 Steelers to impose their will on the undermanned Ravens.

I’m sure John Harbaugh and the Ravens have some other tricks up their sleeves, so it would be smart to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black and gold as they prepare for an eventual game against the Baltimore Ravens...if they don’t strike in the meantime.
