The Baltimore Ravens announced on Monday that “multiple members” of the organization tested positive for COVID-19 after the game versus the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
The Ravens released the following statement on the situation, although the team did not say how many members tested positive and if there were any players among the inflicted.
“Late last night, we were informed that multiple members of the Baltimore Ravens organization tested positive for COVID-19, and those individuals immediately began to self-quarantine.
“We have started the process of contact tracing, and during this time, the Under Armour Performance Center will be closed, with all team activities conducted virtually.
“We will continue to work closely with and follow guidance from the NFL, team doctors and our medical trainers.”
According to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, the positive tests came from both players and staff members.
It’s The Athletic’s policy not to name any who have tested positive unless team or league or affected party announces. But I’m told the positive tests (as many as four at this point) were split amongst players and team staff members.

This is obviously now a concern for the Titans, a team that has already had an outbreak of COVID-19 this season and currently has one player on the Reserve/COVID-19 list in linebacker David Long.
At this point, there have not been any reported positive tests for the Titans after the Week 11 contest, but as we all know it can take days for those to surface.
