The NFL claims to have found “at least four unique strains” of Covid-19 inside the Baltimore Ravens training facility during what has become the league’s worst pandemic outbreak.
“Three of the four were stopped and not spread within our organization,” Ravens president Dick Cass said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the fourth was a highly-contagious strain and spread throughout our organization.”
The team’s strength and conditioning coach, Steve Saunders, has come under fire and was suspended for not always wearing a mask and contact-tracing device in the facility.
“From the outset, we have taken the virus seriously, very seriously,” Cass said. “… Despite our best efforts, the protocol is only as effective as our weakest link. With a dangerous virus like this, everyone must comply with the protocol to avoid infecting many. We now know that not everyone at the Ravens followed the protocol thoroughly.”
The outbreak forced the Ravens-Steelers game to be postponed three times.
The Ravens lost to the undefeated Steelers on Wednesday, though they managed to cover a 12-point spread. The team placed 23 players on the reserve/Covid-19 list during the outbreak. Starting quarterback Lamar Jackson was among those missing for Wednesday’s game. The team expects to know on Sunday whether Jackson can start in the Ravens Tuesday game against Dallas.
Baltimore opened as a -10 point favorite with the line dropping to -9 by Saturday.
