NFL tournament officials will meet later on Friday to discuss the Ravens situation amid the COVID-19 outbreak, but there may be no decision on Friday as to whether Sunday’s match will continue, as the latest test results will only arrive tonight. . Kinkhabwala added.
The game was originally supposed to be played Thursday night, but due to an outbreak within the Ravens organization, the NFL postponed the game to Sunday at 1:15 p.m.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was one of Ravens ’four players, and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said Thanksgiving was positive for COVID-19 and the league is waiting for contact information after positive tests.
