Report: Ravens-Steelers game is on, Pouncey added to COVID-19 list


The game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens will go on as scheduled on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

However, the Steelers will be without center Maurkice Pouncey as he is being placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, Schefter reported.

This will make the key piece of Pittsburgh's offensive line unavailable for the Steelers matchup with the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday afternoon. Pouncey is an 8-time Pro Bowler and 2-time NFL All-Pro who has been a consistent force upfront. 

Pouncey joins a long list of Ravens and Steelers players that have been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list in recent days, causing the game to be moved from Thanksgiving night to Wednesday. Pittsburgh will also be without running back James Conner who tested positive for the coronavirus on Saturday.

As for the Ravens, Baltimore reported no positive tests based on their rapid test results for Wednesday, Schefter reported. It is the first time in 10 days that the organization did not have a positive test.

Still, the team will be missing numerous names when it takes the field in the afternoon. An outbreak within the organization led to over 20 players being placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. While some have since been re-activated, the Ravens will be without the likes of Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Mark Andrews on Wednesday.
