The Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens are contact tracing after one player on each team tested positive for COVID-19. On the Packers, it was running back A. J. Dillon, and on the Ravens, it was cornerback Marlon Humphrey.
#Packers RB A.J. Dillon is the player who tested positive for COVID-19, per source.
Contact tracing is underway. Depending on close contacts, especially within the small RB room, potential competitive implications on Thursday night's game against the #49ers.

This creates a tricky situation for the Packers, who are set to turn around and play on Thursday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers this week. Running back Aaron Jones has already missed the last two weeks with a calf injury, and his status for Thursday is uncertain. With Dillon out, Jamaal Williams is the only healthy rusher for Green Bay right now, pending contact tracing. Hopefully for both teams, one case does not become multiple.
