The NFL’s Thanksgiving Day plate just became a little lighter.
After multiple Baltimore Ravens tested positive for COVID-19 this week, the league moved Thursday night’s game between the Ravens and undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers to Sunday afternoon.
The decision marks the first time since Week 5 that the league has postponed a game due to COVID-19 concerns.
On Monday, coach Jim Harbaugh revealed that running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins had tested positive for COVID-19. According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, five more players – quarterback Trace McSorley, defensive end Calais Campbell, outside linebacker Pernell McPhee and offensive linemen Matt Skura and Patrick Mekari – also tested positive this week. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that the team “severely limited” along the offensive line with players ruled out due to close contact to those who had tested positive.
