2019 NFL MVP Lamar Jackson has tested positive for the coronavirus

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

The Baltimore Ravens received devastating news on Thanksgiving. Their star quarterback Lamar Jackson has tested positive for the coronavirus. 

As a result, the 2019 NFL MVP will be isolated away from his teammates. With Jackson’s positive test — and new additional positive tests from others on the team — the Ravens outbreak now stands at 12.

“Praying for my brother Lamar Jackson and every player, staff member, and their families dealing with COVID-19,” Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III said in a post on Twitter. “Ensuring the safety of the entire organization is important. Handling this outbreak within the team is bigger than football.”

The NFL is monitoring the team’s coronavirus outbreak. Right now, their game with the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field is in jeopardy of being played.

It was originally scheduled to be played on Thanksgiving night. However, due to earlier positive coronavirus tests, the game was postponed to Sunday afternoon on NBC. 

No decision has been made on the status of the Ravens and Steelers game, as of yet. But a decision could be made as soon as Friday by the league.

If the game is played on Sunday afternoon, the Ravens would have Griffin III as the starter — if he’s not one of the players, who have contracted the virus. It does not sound like Griffin III is one of the players infected with the virus.

This season, Jackson has gone 175 of 276 for 1,948 yards. He has had 15 touchdown passes and six interceptions. 

Griffin III; however, has gone 1 of 2 for 9 yards this season. He has also thrown one interception.
