From a report by Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic, the team has as many as four new positives tests for COVID-19 on Tuesday. On Monday, running back J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list due to positive tests, as was defensive tackle Brandon Williams, though his was due to being identified as a close contact.
Per sources, the Ravens have as many as four new positive tests for COVID-19 today after learning of four others on Sunday night. All told, since Sunday night, there's been at least 10 positive tests. Not all players. Coaches and support staff members included.

“We will continue to monitor developments in consultation with our medical experts,” the league said. “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.”
Positive tests can continue to show up as the week evolves, even five days after exposure, meaning the Ravens are still not out of the woods as it relates to more positive tests.
With Thursday’s kickoff still scheduled, the Ravens will travel to Pittsburgh on Wednesday. But plans are still fluid as the days, and hours, go by.
