Ravens head coach John Harbaugh issued the following statement:
“We appreciate the efforts of the NFL and Pittsburgh Steelers throughout this process, while we all work to create an environment that keeps the health and safety of everyone involved at the forefront of each decision.
Our organization has a plan in place, and we will be prepared to play the Steelers. We thank everyone for their adaptability and look forward to the challenge of facing a very good football team at Heinz Field on Tuesday night.”
Pittsburgh also added three players to the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. The team announced defensive end Stephon Tuitt, defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs and offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins were added to the list.
The Thanksgiving night game between the Ravens and Steelers was first switched to Sunday afternoon because of positive COVID-19 tests within the Ravens organization.
Earlier this week, the Ravens placed outside linebacker Pernell McPhee on the Reserve/COVID-19, joining running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.
Defensive end Jihad Ward, defensive end Calais Campbell, offensive linemen Patrick Mekari and Matt Skura were also among Ravens players placed on the Reserve/Covid-19 list.
The outbreak could cause some moves on the roster.
Campbell said Friday that the Ravens just want to contain the outbreak within the team, calling the virus “brutal.”
He referenced having COVID-19, saying he was “speaking from experience.”
“We just want to contain this outbreak!” Campbell tweeted. “Speaking from experience, you don’t want to catch COVID. This virus is brutal! I pray no one else has to go through this. This is bigger than football!”
