After activating TE Josh Oliver, Ravens have no players on reserve/COVID-19 list

Two Ravens were activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, leaving the team with no players sidelined by the NFL’s coronavirus policies.

Tight end Josh Oliver, who was placed on the list Dec. 23 and has missed the past two games, and practice squad defensive back Kevin Toliver, who was added Dec. 21, were cleared to return. The Ravens had five active-roster players miss their Week 15 loss to the Green Bay Packers while on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and 10 sat out their Week 16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Under the league’s updated protocols, the standard isolation period after a positive test for asymptomatic individuals has been reduced from 10 days to five days, regardless of vaccination status. Fully vaccinated players who test positive can clear protocols sooner if they return two negative tests within one day and are asymptomatic.

Oliver, also a special teams contributor, has eight catches for 65 yards in 13 games this season. Toliver, who joined the Ravens’ practice squad in late November, has yet to appear in a game this season.

In other moves, the Ravens signed running back Jacques Patrick to the practice squad. Patrick, who has spent time on the practice squads of the Cincinnati Bengals, San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers, will take the spot of practice squad running back Nate McCrary, who was placed on the injured list last week.
