NFL Week 12 overreactions: This will not be Mahomes and Chiefs last trip to Tampa this season
SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports’ Mackenzie Salmon goes around the league and breaks down all the biggest story lines from Week 12 in the NFL.
For the third time in less than a week, the NFL has postponed Tuesday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The meeting of AFC North rivals, originally set for Thanksgiving night, is now scheduled to be played Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports’ Jarrett Bell. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the move had not yet officially been announced by the league.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first to report the news.
The Steelers’ Week 13 game against the Washington Football Team also will be moved to Monday, according to multiple reports. Three games now are scheduled to be played that day, as the Ravens’ previously scheduled Thursday contest against the Dallas Cowboys was also moved to that day.
The league first delayed the game to Sunday and then to Tuesday amid the Ravens’ COVID-19 outbreak.
Prior to that initial postponement, the NFL had not moved a game since Week 5.
Since Baltimore’s Week 11 game against the Tennessee Titans, the team has placed 21 players on the COVID-19 reserve list, which is designated for those who either test positive or are designated as high-risk close contacts with those who have received positive tests.
On Monday, the Ravens activated four players from the COVID-19 reserve list but placed four more on it. The team has 19 players who still remain on the list and has returned a positive test from at least one player in each of the last nine days.
One player tested positive during Monday’s testing, but he is on injured reserve and was not found to have close contact with any other players, ESPN’s Dan Graziano reported.
Among the players who have tested positive are quarterback and reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson, running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins, tight end Mark Andrews, defensive end Calais Campbell and outside linebacker Matthew Judon.
