Baltimore Ravens superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This is a scary situation unfolding in Baltimore, especially with tight end Mark Andrews deciding to play this season despite being diabetic. The reigning MVP will miss Week 12, which means that Robert Griffin III will be starting for Baltimore. This is a massive development that may dig the Ravens an even larger hole in their efforts to push their way back into playoff position. Jackson will be eligible to return to the team late in Week 13 providing he shows no symptoms, though the Ravens are currently scheduled to play on Thursday night. If he is symptomatic, he may miss multiple contests unless he starts returning negative tests tomorrow. RGIII will be a superflex option only.
This practice report needs to be taken with a grain of salt, as it was made abundantly clear that McCaffrey was in a red non-contact jersey on Wednesday, but he still received a limited tag. McCaffrey is expected to miss Week 12, but if he makes major strides overnight, he does have a plausible, however unlikely, chance to be cleared for this weekend's contest against the Minnesota Vikings. Mike Davis, the presumed starter for this weekend, is our 11th ranked running back for Week 12.
