The NFL remains insistent on the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers playing their Week 12 contest, but the situation could eventually preclude it. Wide receiver Willie Snead is the latest projected starter to test positive for Covid-19, per Jamison Hensley. This is the eighth straight day at least one player has tested positive for the virus.

The Ravens list of starters and potentially significant contributors includes Snead, QB Lamar Jackson, RBs JK Dobbins and Mark Ingram, TE Mark Andrews, OL Matt Skura, DJ Fluker, and Patrick Mekari, DL Brandon Williams, Calais Campbell, and Justin Madubuike, LBs Matt Judos, Pernell McPhee, and Jaylen Ferguson, LS Morgan Cox.

Snead was scheduled to start opposite Marquise Brown, and the Ravens receiver corps was one of the few not yet impacted by Covid-19. If the game happens, Dez Bryant, Devin Duvernay, and Miles Boykin will all see more playing time alongside Marquise Brown. However, the status of the game remains in question.
