The Ravens last practiced the Saturday before their game against the Tennessee Titans.
As of Sunday night, at least 12 Ravens players and eight members of Baltimore’s staff had tested positive for COVID-19 over the past eight days, according to CBS Sports. That includes star quarterback Lamar Jackson, per NFL reports.
On Monday, the team said it hosted a “safely distanced walk-through/conditioning session at the Under Armour Performance Center.”
“Players arrived already prepared to work out on the field, and they did not enter the locker room or training room,” the team said in a statement. “We intend to hold another walk-through session on Tuesday, in preparation for traveling to Pittsburgh Tuesday evening.”
Players who test positive for COVID-19 are required to quarantine for a minimum of 10 days, according to the team. Players who are deemed “high-risk close contacts” have to sit out at least five days.
