NFL Network's Tom Pelissero confirms Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins are both eligible to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday. That does not mean they will be, of course. Neither player's coronavirus status is known. They are also ineligible for Tuesday's team flight to Pittsburgh. If both are asymptomatic and ready to go, it's possible they will drive or fly themselves to Pittsburgh, get tested Wednesday, and cleared. The most likely scenario is still Gus Edwards and Justice Hill leading the Ravens' backfield, but fantasy managers should be prepared for the possibility that Ingram and Dobbins play.

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports James Conner tested positive for COVID-19. Conner is waiting for a second test on Sunday to confirm the results. Barring a false positive, he'll be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and miss Week 12. The Steelers will turn to a committee of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland to replace Conner. With a short turnaround in Week 13, Conner may be looking at a multi-game absence. It's possible the NFL cancels this week's Steelers-Ravens matchup all together.
