There is a pessimism that Aaron Jones (calf) will return on Thursday, NFL Network Insider’s Ian Rapoport reported, according to a source. The current plan appears to play out with Tyler Ervin and Dexter Williams compared with 49ers, Rapoport added.
According to Pelissero, in news regarding COVID-19, Baltimore Ravens did not have any new positive tests since Monday’s screening round. Ravens corner-back Marlon Humphrey tested positive just like Dillon, playing 54 times in Baltimore’s defeat to Pittsburgh before learning he was positive for COVID-19 on Monday.
Decisions are still being made with strong ties to Humphrey, who will not play Week 9 against Indianapolis.
