Ward is the eighth Ravens’ player to be placed on the COVID-19 list this week including:
- RB Mark Ingram
- RB J.K. Dobbins
- NT Brandon Williams
- OLB Pernell McPhee
- DE Calais Campbell
- OL Matt Skura
- OL Patrick Mekari
- DE Jihad Ward
The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.
Ward, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Raiders back in 2016. He was in the third year of his four-year, $5.539 million contract when the Raiders traded him to the Cowboys for WR Ryan Switzer.
Dallas wound up waiving Ward coming out of the 2018 preseason and he later signed on with the Colts. After being released by Indianapolis last year, Ward signed on with the Ravens and returned to Baltimore this past March on a new deal.
In 2020, Ward has appeared in six games for the Ravens and recorded 12 tackles and a sack.
