The Ravens announced that all team activities would be conducted virtually for the second straight day after running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins and defensive lineman Brandon Williams were all placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. That list is for players who test positive for the coronavirus and those determined through contact tracing to have been exposed to it.

On Tuesday, the Ravens canceled practice after learning of more positive coronavirus tests Tuesday morning, according to a source.

"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", the team said in a statement. That was before reports of additional positive tests surfaced Tuesday.

"We will continue to monitor developments in consultation with our medical experts", the National Football League spokesman wrote in a statement.

The NFL has not suspended a game because of COVID-19 since Week 5.

Included in the new rules is the mandatory use of masks at all times at team facilities, including during practice and in weight rooms, while meetings must be held either virtually or in the largest indoor space with approval by the league.

The Ravens lost to the Tennessee Titans Sunday, 30-24 in overtime, despite having an 11-point lead. "Due to the condensed schedule and preparation for the Steelers game, the Ravens will cancel media availability for today".
