NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Ravens starting quarterback tested positive for COVID-19. The positive coronavirus test means Jackson will not be able to play Sunday.

Thursday is the fourth straight day that the Ravens had more positive cases of COVID-19.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that four more Ravens players and one staff member tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday. Sunday’s game is on for now “but chances of it being played are diminishing quickly,” according to Schefter.

Schefter also reported that Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told the team that no one is allowed back into the facility until Monday at the earliest.

On Wednesday, the NFL announced that the Steelers-Ravens game originally scheduled for Thanksgiving night would be postponed until Sunday at 1:15 p.m. due to Baltimore’s coronavirus outbreak.

A Ravens employee has also been disciplined in connection with the outbreak.
