The Pittsburgh Steelers are now scheduled to take on the Baltimore Ravens at 3:40 p.m. on Wednesday at Heinz Field.  It’s the third time the game, originally scheduled for Thanksgiving night, has been postponed because of COVID concerns. It will broadcast on NBC and WPXI-TV.

In addition, the Steelers game against the Washington Football Team, originally scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 6, has been changed to Monday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m.

The Ravens have 14 players, including quarterback Lamar Jackson, on the reserve/COVID list.  The Steelers announced Friday that three of its players, Defensive ends Stephon Tuitt and Isaiah Buggs and offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins were placed on the reserve/COVID list. The team did not indicate whether any of the players tested positive for coronavirus or only came into close contact with someone who did.

It’s not an unfamiliar situation for the Steelers. Earlier this season, their game with the Titans was moved, costing Pittsburgh a bye week.
