Ravens-Steelers game postponed until Tuesday due to coronavirus outbreak

Ravens-Steelers game postponed until Tuesday due to coronavirus outbreak

The game was moved from Thursday to Sunday.

Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers as they prepare for the Ravens on Tuesday night in Week 12. This virus is brutal!

Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner tested positive for the coronavirus Saturday, according to a report from NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala, as a part out of an outbreak affecting the team. "This is bigger than football".

At the moment, Tuesday night's game remains on as scheduled.

At least 16 players between the Ravens and Steelers are on the reserve/COVID-19 list, with more expected to join.

Losing Jackson delivers another blow to the NFL's top-ranked rushing attack.

Jackson, fullback Patrick Ricard, defensive tackle Justin Madubuike, and long snapper Morgan Cox were added to the COVID-19 list on Monday. Tight end Vance McDonald tested positive following a win over Dallas earlier this month.

The Steelers placed three players - defensive end Stephon Tuitt, defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs, and offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins - on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

Baltimore have fallen to 6-4 and third in the division, a game behind the second-placed Cleveland Browns and four back of rivals the Steelers.

A year after becoming the league's second unanimous NFL MVP, Jackson struggled to match the same success, especially in the passing game. He ranks 22nd in passing yards (1,948) and 28th in completion rate (63.4%).

Jackson has had a more testing campaign in 2020, throwing for 15 TDs but six picks - already matching his total interceptions for 2019. His supporting cast hasn't been as strong either.
