Another Ravens’ player has tested positive for COVID-19. Lamar Jackson, the franchise quarterback, has reportedly also tested positive.

Players who have tested positive or labeled “high-risk, close contacts:”

  1. QB Lamar Jackson
  2. RB J.K. Dobbins
  3. RB Mark Ingram II
  4. OL Patrick Mekari
  5. OL Matt Skura
  6. DE Calais Campbell
  7. DE Jihad Ward
  8. QB Trace McSorley
  9. OLB Pernell McPhee
  10. CB Iman Marshall

These are only the players that have tested positive. There are also reports of “at least one coach” and “several support staff member” testing positive for COVID-19.

Last night the Ravens released a statement regarding disciplinary action for the outbreak.

“The Baltimore Ravens have disciplined a staff member for conduct surrounding the recent COVID-19 cases that affected players and staff at the Ravens.”

According to The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec, the suspended staff member was Strength & Conditioning Coach Steve Saunders.

The Ravens will likely start Robert Griffin III for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and possibly against the Dallas Cowboys the following week, as Jackson will likely be unable to play the next two games.

UPDATE: 8:01 p.m. ET

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, four more Ravens’ players and one more staff member has tested positive for COVID-19.

Two of the players known are Jackson and Ward. The rest are unreported at the moment.
