Ravens CB Iman Marshall placed on reserve/COVID-19 list; team says there are no high-risk close contacts

Ravens running back Gus Edwards welcomes the return of teammate Mark Ingram II from his injury.

The Ravens on Thursday placed cornerback Iman Marshall on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Marshall, a 2019 fourth-round pick, was placed on season-ending injured reserve in August after suffering a “major knee injury” the day before the team’s first padded practice.

The team announced Thursday morning that Marshall had tested positive for COVID-19 and said he immediately began to self-quarantine.

The Ravens, who have reentered the NFL’s intensive protocol, said there were no high-risk close contacts with teammates or staff members.

“We will continue to work closely with the NFL, our team doctors and trainers and will follow their guidance,” the team said in a statement.

The positive test comes more than a week after All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey tested positive for COVID-19. Seven Ravens teammates were sidelined for several days of practice last week because of high-risk exposure.

“I’m really proud of those guys [for] how they prepared last week," defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale said Thursday on a video conference call. "I just told them yesterday, I said, ‘This thing is far from being over, but I didn’t think it was going to be the next day that you had to go virtual again.’ But it’s become, in 2020, the way of life. I just hope everybody stays safe and healthy. And wear your mask, wash your hands and do all that.”
