By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - The Baltimore Ravens reportedly learned of more positive coronavirus tests ahead of the game against the Steelers on Thanksgiving.

There are more positive COVID-19 tests among the Ravens, Jeff Zrebiec reported per sources.

The Ravens put out a statement Tuesday morning saying "with health and safety of players and staff remaining the highest priority," all further team activities will be done virtually.

They're also canceling media availability as they prepare for the Ravens-Steelers game Thursday.

This comes after the Ravens said Monday multiple members of the organization had tested positive for coronavirus.

In that statement, the Ravens didn't say how many people have tested positive but said those infected are self-quarantining.

They started contact tracing and closed the Under Armour Performance Center.

Zrebiec reports sources say the Ravens have as many as four new positive COVID-19 tests Tuesday. Since Sunday night, he says there's been at least 10 positive tests including players, coaches and support staff members.

The undefeated Steelers go against the Ravens at 8:20 p.m. Nov. 26.

According to Tom Pelissero, the NFL says the game is still on. He says the NFL says: "We will continue to monitor developments in consultation with our medical experts. Our foremost concern is the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel. There's no change to the status of the game."
