The Baltimore Ravens placed four members of the defensive front on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday.
The move came after ESPN reported outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson tested positive for the virus. The others added to the list were defensive tackle Brandon Williams, defensive end Justin Madubuike and linebacker Justin Houston.
The Ravens (1-1) travel to Detroit to meet the Lions (0-2) on Sunday.
Ferguson is the only player who reportedly tested positive. He was one of eight Ravens absent from practice Friday as contract tracing went on. To be eligible to play, any vaccinated players who were deemed close contacts must test negative twice, 24 hours apart.
Ferguson, 25, recorded two tackles in the first two games of the season for the Ravens.
He has 63 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries in 30 career games (10 starts) since being selected by Baltimore in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
