The Baltimore Ravens will be extremely short when they play against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday. The club is currently in the midst of a COVID-19 epidemic that has hit all areas of the roster, including quarterback Lamar Jackson, pass rusher Calais Campbell, runners Mark Ingram and rookie JK Dobbins. All of these positive tests forced the tournament to reschedule the 12-week match twice after it was originally designated as the number one race for Thanksgiving.

The ravens keep coming to the ravens Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network reports that scarce Mark Marks has given a positive result for COVID-19 and will miss Tuesday’s match with Pittsburgh. Rapoport adds that linebacker Matthew Judon was also will be added to the reserve / COVID listthat is, he is also out for the 12th week.

For Andrews, this positive test affects him especially in the knowledge that the tight end has type 1 diabetes. According to the CDC, type 1 or gestational diabetes may increase the risk of serious illness due to COVID-19. Despite the pre-existing condition, Andrews decided in July not to give up on 2020 and the game.

As far as Judon is concerned, it is not clear at this stage whether his placement on the reserve / COVID list was the result of a positive test or whether he was considered to be in close contact with someone who gave a positive result. Regardless, head-to-head will miss AFC North, which is just another big blow to defend Baltimore. This season, Judon has four sacks, 34 assists and 17 quarterback hits for 10 games this season.

In total, the Ravens have 22 players on the reserve / COVID list.
