Baltimore's two primary running backs have tested positive for COVID-19 including Mark Ingram and JK Dobbins. Both the Ravens' players will not be available for the Thanksgiving game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Multiple players from the team were tested positive last night following which they were placed into isolation. The teams have also begun contact-tracing. The Under Armour Performance Center was announced to get closed as the Baltimores are taking steps to take control of the outbreak. Both J.K. Dobbins & Mark Ingram have been placed under the COVID-19 reserve list.

Here’s what Positive COVID-19 tests would Follow.

The Ravens game that was to be played against the Steelers would still be played as the stipulated schedule. And, not only Ravens but the Steelers had their own struggle with COVID-19 with several players along with Ben Roethlisberger, the quarterback ending up on the COVID-19 reserve list. 

This is going to be the third game for Ravens after back-to-back losses against the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans that looks like they are going to lose it without their running backs. Despite several players from different teams testing positive for COVID-19, the NFL is attempting to reach the finish line. In order to take the season to completion, the league had turned to better & strict testing protocols. If the league could not finish the season as scheduled, it has a plan for a 16-team playoff. 

A Week 12 waiver priority.

The Week 12 priority list for the waiver wire suffered a significant tweak after there was the news of Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins testing positive for coronavirus came in. In fact, it was clear the very day when multiple players from team Ravens got tested positive for coronavirus. Gus Edwards was a surefire in most of the weeks. Edwards is a high-end No.2 running back in non-PPR. For the 87 yards and a touchdown that Edwards earned in the last game with the Steelers, Edwards’ workload was equal to 16 carries he received in that game. This is why he is the top waiver-wire priority for Week 12 and heavy investment in FAB. 

Dobbins was just to make 17 touches, one day away from his career’s highest against the Titans that he was removed. It was just he was on his way to stardom breaking free from the committee in Baltimore and then all of this was changed. On the other hand, Ingram had only two carries for 2 yards in Week 11 and he had no double-digit carries since Week 5. There is no sense in holding on to Ingram unless there is an open IR spot. When he is back, there is no clue what role he will have to play.
