Baltimore Ravens Place Three WRs on Reserve/Covid-19 ListBy Connor Lynch
The Baltimore Ravens are still battling with the effects of the Covid-19 virus – in more ways than one.
The Baltimore Ravens placed three wide receivers on the reserve/Covid-19 list on Wednesday. It’s unclear whether Miles Boykin, James Proche and Marquise Brown will be available to play on Sunday.
They were placed on the list as a result of being identified as close contacts. In spite of not testing positive, they will abstain from practice this week. They will be able to play on Sunday if they keep returning negative tests.
“We’re hoping and praying that they don’t turn out to have it,” John Harbaugh said.

Lamar Jackson sat for 13 minutes of the 4th quarter of the Baltimore Ravens win over Cleveland on Monday.
The quarterback was suffering from cramp, which he believes may be related to his bout with Covid-19.
Jackson was diagnosed with the virus over Thanksgiving, and is reported to have suffered badly with it.
“Probably because of the body heat and we’re running in the cold,” said Jackson.
“It was so cold out there. That probably had an effect on that as well. Can’t call it.
“I was real-life cramping, like my hand, my throwing arm cramping, forearm cramping, fingers getting stuck together,” Jackson continued.
“I was going through it, I was ticked off.”
Jackson returned to the field to make two vitals plays which led to the 47 – 42 win over the Cleveland Browns. He believes he would have returned to play regardless of Trace McSorley’s injury.
“I was actually getting stretched and I saw it was third down, I was getting up. Was already probably going out, if I’m not mistaken, I think I was probably already going out still. I don’t even think it mattered, I was still going out regardless, I had to do it.”
