Report: Ravens put Jihad Ward’s defensive end on Reserve / COVID-19 list originally posted on NBC Sports Washington

Another Ravens player made the Reserve / COVID-19 list on Thanksgiving Day when the team put the defensive end of Jihad Ward on the list that afternoon, according to a report by ESPN’s Jamison Hensley.

Ward was listed in the team’s injury report on Thursday. This was an estimate since he was absent due to a non-injury issue. Ward wasn’t on the team’s injury report on Wednesday.

The Ravens put eight players on the COVID list this week: running backs Mark Ingram and J.. . K. . Dobbins, defensive tackle against Brandon Williams, full-back Pernell McPhee, defensive end Calais Campbell, offensive linemen Matt Skura and Patrick Mekari and now Ward.

The team has a total of 10 players on the list since quarterback Trace McSorley was added to the list last week. Cornerback Iman Marshall, who is in injured reserve with a knee injury, was also previously added to the list. In addition, several trainers have been reported to have COVID-19.

Wednesday night, the team released a statement saying it had disciplined an employee for conduct related to the recent COVID-19 cases.

As a result of the COVID-19 cases in Baltimore, the Ravens Steelers game was postponed with a 1:15 kick-off from Thanksgiving to Sunday afternoon, angering members of the Steelers organization.

It is unclear whether Ward tested positive or identified as a close contact. Assuming he tests positive for COVID-19, he’ll be out for both games against the Steelers and Cowboys for the next week.

Ward has played six games this season, recording one sack and 12 tackles.

The Cowboys tried a wrong punt when they were four in the fourth quarter of their Thanksgiving game against Washington, and it COMPLETELY exploded on their faces.

The Ravens have disciplined the trainer who they believe is causing the rash in COVID positive cases.

The final moments of Asif Kapadia’s great film Diego Maradona are almost too painful to watch. To a soundtrack of an interview he conducted at the height of his powers in Napoli, when he talks about the football pitch being a haven, a refuge, a place of freedom where he can express himself without fear, we see Maradona in his late fifties he was trying to play five-a-side with his friends. The juxtaposition of the glorious athlete of our collective memory and the hobbling, bulbous, arthritic shadow that he became is a telling reflection of his demise. So steep was his fall that it seemed almost the result of a fist pact, an agreement to become the most influential footballer in the world in return for an athletic afterlife of misery and self-loathing. The sadness is that any evaluation of his genius can only take into account what happened next. It had taken a long time, but we started getting indications that he had disbanded at the 1994 World Cup. The man who dragged his country to victory in 1986 and almost repeated the trick in 1990 has since become a drug addict parody of his glory days. His goggle-eyed celebration when he scored his last goal for his country in the game against Greece was a symptom of his personal nightmare: the man was irreparably wired. Forbidden, traded and embarrassed, his career as a player was over. But back in his homeland he was still worshiped. And no wonder, given what he had delivered. He took his fame as a chat show host into a lucrative turn before his inability to control his appetite compromised his ability to formulate a question. Even so, he knew his way around football and in 2005 he was offered a role as sports director at Boca Juniors, his old club in Buenos Aires’ harshest neighborhood. In a stadium that remains a shrine to his brilliance 25 years after he last kicked a ball there, his presence was an inspiration. Boca won four trophies in two seasons, watching enthusiastically from his private box. However, in a way that was to become a pattern, it didn’t last. He fell out with the club president and was gone.

(Bloomberg Opinion) – Football fans are fortunate enough to live in a time when two superstars are simultaneously claiming to be the best player in the history of the sport – and even happier that we are watching Lionel’s competition Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo can play week after week in front of an audience of billions worldwide. Thanks to YouTube, I can watch high quality videos of their most compelling performances and every goal they have ever scored. When Diego Maradona put his claim to the title of best of all time, most of the world could only get a four year glimpse of his genius as he competed for Argentina at the 82, 86, 90 and 94 World Championships. Growing up in India during this period, I never saw highlights of his accomplishments for FC Barcelona or Napoli (a city where he is still considered part of deity, part of royalty). . Obituary: Maradona, the football icon who brought Argentina to fame, dies at the age of 60. There are some video highlights online now that keep a grainy record of him in his pomp – including THAT goal against England at the Azteca Stadium on Dec.. June 1986. But these only indicate what he was capable of. They are not sufficient evidence to argue that he was the best of all time. What makes it even more difficult is the even rarer evidence for applicants of earlier generations: Hungary’s Ferenc Puskas, Spain and Argentina’s Alfredo di Stefano, Brazil’s Pele, the Dutchman Johan Cruyff, Germany’s Franz Beckenbauer et al. In any case, the fact that they played under different conditions and rules and in different positions makes the argument controversial. So we have no way of knowing if Maradona was technically the best at kicking a ball. Even so, I’m here to argue that he was the greatest of all time. And my case rests on the simple fact that, more than any of the other applicants named here, it came closest to the dictum that football is a team sport. For most of his career, Maradona played on teams that had no other top players in the world. Look at the list of squads in Napoli with whom he conquered Italian football in 1986-87 and there is no other player who would make it to a Serie A hall of fame. He had a slightly better supporting cast with the Argentine teams, which he played in two World Cup finals – he won them in 1986 and got painfully close to him in 1990 – but no one would argue that Jorge Valdano was for Maradona, which, for example, was Jairzinho after Pele in ’70. It’s one thing to be a brilliant player surrounded by other brilliant players. In that regard, Messi and Ronaldo have been extraordinarily lucky with their club teams. But Maradona made magic out of mediocre materials. What makes this even more remarkable is the weight of anticipation it carried on its tiny frame. When he signed for Napoli in 1984, the club had never won the Italian league and yet their fans immediately dreamed of championship glory. The « Pibe de Oro » or golden boy was as much a talisman as the captain and player. Other footballers – including Messi – have had to deal with similar pressures since then, but modern superstars are surrounded by a framework of public relations professionals and psychiatrists to help them. Maradona, who lacked support on the field, still provided the « Oro » for club and country again and again. Until he didn’t. It was probably inevitable that the burdens of his genius would eventually crush him, and in spectacular ways. But it held out long enough to cast bronze – like the plaque commemorating THIS gate in front of the Azteca Stadium – and its claim to be the greatest of all time. RIP, Diego Armando Maradona, goat.
