Ravens QB Lamar Jackson reportedly tests positive for COVID-19

But they won't be able to play on a two-day turnaround, which means that game likely gets pushed back to Sunday.

The Ravens have placed nine players on the reserve/COVID-19 list over the past week, and they received four additional positive tests Thursday. Pittsburgh is scheduled to face the Washington Football Team on Sunday next week. And with reigning league MVP Lamar Jackson testing positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, it made even more sense to kick the game back a few days to allow testing for players, coaches, and staffers. The contest may be in question now that the Ravens returned more positive tests.

This decision has major implications on the Thursday night game which was set to take place between the Ravens and the Cowboys.

As of Friday, the Ravens sit in the No. 8 spot in the AFC field.

Still, the league has already approved a Week 18 contingency plan in order to avoid a drastic measure like a forfeiture.

The Steelers (10-0) earlier saw their game against the Titans rescheduled because of an outbreak affecting the Tennessee team.

The team said it "disciplined" a strength and conditioning coach for not following COVID-19 protocols, including not wearing a mask in the team facility, not reporting symptoms of the virus and failing to wear a required tracking device.
