Both Ingram and Dobbins tested positive on Monday - leading Baltimore to shut down the team facility ASAP.

Earlier in the day, the team had said multiple members of the organization were self-isolating and that contact tracing efforts were underway after the team received positive test results late Sunday night.

"With the health and safety of players and staff remaining the highest priority, the Baltimore Ravens have determined that all further team activities will be conducted virtually today", the team said in a statement.

"We will continue to monitor developments in consultation with our medical experts", a statement, obtained by the NFL Network, read.

The players who tested positive were not immediately identified.


The Ravens did not practice Monday because of coronavirus concerns, but the team estimated that defensive end Calais Campbell (calf), cornerback Jimmy Smith (ankle), defensive end Derek Wolfe (illness) and center Patrick Mekari (not injury related) would've been sidelined.

The Ravens (6-4) have a short week of practice following Sunday's 30-24 overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans. The league had already been operating under its intensive protocols for COVID-19.

The Thanksgiving AFC North showdown is still expected to be played as scheduled.

The Ravens also said they were canceling all media availability for players and coaches Tuesday because of "the condensed schedule and preparation for the Steelers game".
