As contact-tracing continues within the Baltimore Ravens organization, a strength and conditioning coach was found to not have been regularly wearing a mask or tracking device. Per sources of NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the coach’s disregard for protocol could be what contributed to the team’s recent round of positive COVID-19 cases.
By proactively disciplining the coach, the #Ravens potentially could reduce or avoid discipline they face from the league over an outbreak that forced the postponement of the Thanksgiving night game against the #Steelers. https://t.co/HKxL5WrJ2u

The unidentified coach has been disciplined by the Ravens, which could reduce any penalty the team faces as it relates to the rescheduled Steelers-Ravens matchup.
Earlier this year, the Tennessee Titans were handed down a $350,000 fine for violating league protocol.
The NFL should come down hard on the Ravens, especially considering how much revenue will be lost because of the game delay. Then again, the punishment for the Titans was anticipated to be much greater than it actually was.
