Complete list of all 10 Ravens players currently on the COVID-19 list
By Justin Fried
The Baltimore Ravens are one of many teams around the NFL dealing with a mini-COVID-19 outbreak at the moment. As of the time of writing, 10 total players for the team are currently on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
That number is undoubtedly set to change one way or another over the coming days, but at least for now, close to a dozen Ravens, unfortunately, find themselves on the list.
The latest addition was outside linebacker Pernell McPhee who was added to the list on Tuesday after being activated off the injured reserve the day earlier.
But which others players are on the list? Which players are potentially in danger of missing Sunday’s game as a result?
Which Ravens players are on the COVID-19 list?
Seven of the 10 Ravens on the COVID-19 list are on the active roster while three others are on the practice squad. The three practice squad players on the list are running back Nate McCrary, wide receiver Jaylon Moore, and cornerback Kevin Toliver.
As for the active roster, safety Chuck Clark, center Trystan Colon, outside linebacker Justin Houston, cornerback Jimmy Smith, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, and cornerback Chris Westry join McPhee on the COVID list.
That’s at least four starters who find themselves out due to COVID-19. Given the already injured state of the Ravens roster, that’s something they could ill-afford.
With Clark, Westry, and Smith out last Sunday, the Ravens’ secondary was left in shambles. Anthony Averett and Kevon Seymour started at cornerback while Geno Stone filled in for Clark alongside rookie Brandon Stephens.
Meanwhile, the Ravens are now super thin at outside linebacker after losing Houston and McPhee. They have just three outside linebackers on their active roster in Odafe Oweh, Tyus Bowser, and Jaylon Ferguson, who battled COVID earlier in the year.
The hits just keep coming for the Ravens, although the hope is that many of these players will be able to test out of COVID protocols prior to Sunday’s crucial game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
That, of course, remains to be seen, however.
