Earlier this week, the Ravens posted a statement that said "multiple members" of the team had tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. These members "immediately began" self-quarantining and the organization started contract tracing, according to the statement.

On Wednesday the Ravens said in a statement that they will "continue to follow guidance from the NFL and its medical experts, as we focus on safely resuming preparations for Sunday's game."
