The Ravens on Monday placed newly signed cornerback Kevon Seymour on the reserve / COVID-19 list, threatening his availability for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Seymour played 17 special teams snaps in the Ravens’ 16-10 victory Sunday night over the Cleveland Browns, his first game since he was reported out of the training squad on Saturday. He is the first Raven to be added to the team’s coronavirus list since outside linebackers Jaylon Ferguson and Justin Houston and defensive tackles Brandon Williams and Justin Madubuike was appointed in late September.
Coach John Harbaugh has said the Ravens’ vaccination rate is over 90%. Under NFL protocols, fully vaccinated players who test positive must return two negative tests at least 24 hours apart to be approved for team activities as long as they are asymptomatic. Vaccinated players will not be designated as high-risk close contacts, but can be held for daily tests for five days. Unvaccinated players with infections must be quarantined for at least 10 days, while unvaccinated players who are considered to be close contacts with high risk must sit out for at least five days and continue to test negative throughout.
“I know I do not want to test positive, I can tell you that,” Harbaugh said Monday in the wake of Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy’s reported infection. “Is there anyone? I’m asking for it. Got my toes crossed. Probably crossing fingers too.”
The Ravens also made a training team, releasing quarterback Kenji Bahar (Calvert Hall) and signing Chris Streveler in a similar move. The Arizona Cardinals released Streveler, 26, last week before signing Trace McSorley from the Ravens’ training team.
Bahar, a Baltimore native who spent time with the Ravens during rookie mini-camps and training camps, set school records in Monmouth, a football championship subdivision program, for touchdown passes (70), passing yards (9,642) and 300-yard games (nine).
