CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Ravens and Steelers are getting closer to finally playing their Week 12 game, which has been postponed three times. The game is scheduled for 3:40 p.m., on Wednesday.
Baltimore got some very good news as the team returned to the practice field on Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. The team is expected to fly to Pittsburgh later in the day.
With the game moving to Wednesday afternoon, the Ravens will get some help as Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network noted. J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram will be eligible to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list and play in the game.
However, according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, they won’t be flying out with the team. Instead, they will join the team in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
Will Fuller, Bradley Roby both suspended six games for PEDs
Late on Monday, the Texans got a double dose of bad news. They found out that both wide receiver Will Fuller and cornerback Bradley Roby will be suspended six games for violating the NFL’s policy on PEDs.
Fuller posted on his Instagram that he tested positive because he was prescribed a substance not permitted by the league.
The suspension means that both players will miss the last five games of this season and the opener of the 2021 season.
DK Metcalf explains what got him fired up vs. Eagles
Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf had the best game of his young NFL career on Monday night when he caught 10 passes for a career-high 177 yards in a 23-17 win vs. the Eagles.
It’s only the second time he’s caught 10 passes or more in a game.
After the game, Metcalf talked to reporters about what got him motivated. He said it came from Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz telling him he is not on Calvin Johnson’s level yet.
Metcalf now leads the NFL in receiving yards with 1,039. Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill (1,021 yards) is the only other receiver in the league with more than 1,000 yards.
Broncos quarterbacks reportedly cleared to return
The Broncos look like they will only be playing one game without a quarterback.
Mike Klis of 9News in Denver reported on Tuesday morning that Blake Bortles, Drew Lock and Brett Rypien have all tested negative again, which should clear them to return to practice on Wednesday.
All three of the quarterbacks were held out of Sunday’s 31-3 loss to the Saints after they were deemed as high-risk close contacts to Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for COVID-19. They were forced to start rookie undrafted free agent wide receiver Kendall Hinton at quarterback.
During his Monday press conference, Broncos coach Vic Fangio told reporters including Jeff Legwold of ESPN that he hasn’t ruled out disciplining the three quarterbacks.
