News of Jackson testing positive for COVID-19 comes on the heels of the Thanksgiving Day game between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers getting postponed to Sunday, November 29. The postponement was reportedly enacted due to multiple players on the Ravens (and staff) testing positive or coming into contact with people who have.
Although it's not looking likely, there's been no official word on if the game will still take place on Sunday.
"This decision was made out of an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel and in consultation with medical experts," the NFL said in a statement announcing the Ravens-Steelers game postponement.
In light of the news, the Ravens will reportedly close their training facility for the rest of the week.
Ravens players were told today by their HC John Harbaugh that, for everyone’s safety, they will not be allowed back in the training facility until Monday at the earliest, sources tell ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 27, 2020
Ravens are scheduled to play Steelers on Sunday, so that game doesn’t seem possible.
