Michigan Pauses Practice Due to COVID-19 Tests Ahead of Game Vs. Maryland
11/30/2020 6:53pm

COVID tests force Michigan to pause ahead of game vs. Terps originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonMichigans football program cancelled all in-person activities Monday out of an abundance of caution after the team experienced a spike in positive coronavirus cases that are awaiting confirmation, head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters. He didnt give a timetable for when the team will resume.The Wolverines are slated to host Maryland at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in what would be just the fifth game of the Terps season. Though Harbaugh gave no indication that there are plans to cancel this weekends contest, he didnt rule out the possibility of it being called off, either.Like everything, it just goes along with the culture thats been set here since June, Harbaugh said in a Zoom press conference Monday, as quoted by The Detroit News. This is day-to-day. When results come back, well monitor those results and as always continue to be very proactive.Maryland dealt with its own COVID-19 outbreak that forced the program to cancel games against Ohio State and Michigan State before resuming its schedule Saturday with a 27-11 loss to Indiana. If the Terps upcoming game is in fact cancelled, one available opponent would be Northwestern after the Wildcats upcoming game against Minnesota was cancelled due to an outbreak in the Golden Gophers locker room.The Terps already played Northwestern this year, losing 43-3 in their season opener, but the Big Ten issued a temporary rule change earlier in November that allowed teams to play conference opponents twice in order to get to six total games. Teams must have six games played in order to qualify for the Big Ten championship game, though that threshold will be lowered if the average number of games played among all conference teams is fewer than six.

Ravens Adjusting on the Fly Awaiting Test Results Coming in Late Monday
11/30/2020 6:52pm

Ravens adjusting on the fly awaiting test results coming in late Monday originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonThe Ravens and Steelers game is still up in the air, as the Ravens await their test Monday results, which should become available in the late afternoon or early evening.As of now, the Ravens plan is to travel to Pittsburgh on Monday night for Tuesdays matchup against the Steelers. But if any further players or Tier 1 personnel test positive, the game would likely be postponed again according to a report from Tom Pelissero.Heres where Tuesdays game stands, per sources:If all the Ravens COVID-19 tests come back negative this afternoon, the plan is to practice and travel to Pittsburgh tonight.If any more players or Tier 1 personnel test positive, the game most likely would be postponed again. Tom Pelissero TomPelissero November 30, 2020The Ravens had their early Monday morning practice canceled by the league, which drew ire from a few Ravens on Twitter as they await the next steps from the NFL. There is snow in the forecast for Pittsburgh, which further complicates the Ravens travel plans to Pennsylvania.Tuesdays game has been postponed twice now, once from last Thursday to Sunday and then from Sunday to Tuesday. Any further postponements likely means a cancelation of the game, or postponement to a not-yet-created Week 18.If the Ravens tests come back clean for the first time since Sunday, Nov. 22, then theyll be able to travel to Pittsburgh and presumably face the Steelers with a backup-laden lineup. If there are further positive tests, the league will be thrown into another massive headache.

There's a Long Line of ‘Untouchable' Nationals Prospects
11/30/2020 6:48pm

Theres a long line of untouchable Nationals prospects originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonHeres the conundrum for the Nationals on the trade front: they are not going to trade any of their young, top-tier pitching prospects. Other teams will want these prospects. Hence, a stalemate follows.The Nationals will not be distributing Jackson Rutledge or Cade Cavalli for one year of another player. To see those names attached to any discussion around Kris Bryant is borderline silly. Should the Cubs ask for one of those pitchers in the opening of discussions Of course. Why not The Marlins once asked for Victor Robles and Juan Soto for J.T. Realmuto. Its the shoot-your-shot aspect of negotiations. Then reality begins to join the discourse.After a 2020 flop, the Nationals are simultaneously in win-now and rebuild-now mode. Their 40-man roster remains at just 34. They will be busy signing players should the league ever shift into that mode this winter. At the same time, they need their farm system to hold in order to increase its depth.Which means, at the least, Cavalli and Rutledge are going nowhere. Other young, intriguing members of the 40-man roster like Luis Garca and Yasel Antuna are in a highly unlikely position to be moved. This is not a climate where the Nationals are seeking to fill a single void. Instead, they have a bevy of issues to address and little in-house capital at their disposal.The so-called untouchables of the past included more prominent players. Soto, Robles and Trea Turner last season and prior. However, its not just the prominent names to be wary of when pulling trade.Jess Luzardo was the 15th-ranked prospect in the Nationals system, according to Baseball America, when he was part of a 2017 trade with Oakland. The Nationals sent Blake Treinen, Luzardo and Sheldon Neuse to the As for Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson. Luzardo was 19 years old and coming off Tommy John surgery, which caused his fall to the third round of the 2016 draft. He finished eighth in American League Rookie of the Year voting this year after entering the As rotation. Hes one of the leagues tantalizing young talents.Neuse was ranked 17th at the time. He put together a .939 OPS for Triple-A Las Vegas in 2019 and made his major-league debut the same year because of it. He could have a shot at a starting infield position next season.So, those two were lower-level players which both have turned into major leaguers.For the Nationals, this winter is about wriggling out of the box they are in. Several quality free agent options exist to fix their roster. They have a nice slice of cash to spend should they choose to. They also have a not-so-short list of untouchable prospects despite their farm system being labeled among the worst in the league.

Ron Rivera Says Players ‘Have to Be Smart' to Avoid a Coronavirus Outbreak
11/30/2020 6:31pm

Rivera says players have to be smart to avoid a coronavirus outbreak originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonRon Rivera and the Washington Football Team have not had an easy season when it comes to the quarterback position. Until recently with Alex Smith, there were questions and tough decisions each week.Still, even with all that, Washingtons situation seems rather tame compared to what the Denver Broncos experienced in Week 12. Denver took the field on Sunday with all four quarterbacks inactive due to COVID-19 exposure, forcing them to start at practice squad wide receiver under center.The strange situation stemmed from the Broncos quarterback reportedly not wearing masks or social distancing around Jeff Driskell, who was the first of the group to go on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. That led to the three other passers being deemed close contacts.For Rivera, the goal has been to avoid any positive tests within the organization. Yet, while Washington has not dealt with major issues that other teams have, the surge in cases across the country makes that rather challenging. So, Rivera has also put a focus on making sure a few players at key positions are somewhat separate from others to avoid a fate similar to Denver.We try to make sure our guys understand that specific people have to be smart and have to make sure theyre keeping themselves away from the contact tracing as much as possible, Rivera said.We try to make sure that on certain times, backups, the practice squad guys, understand that theyve got to stay separated. So, were trying to reinforce that even more so now. Its something that weve talked about as a staff this week is that weve got to make sure these guys all understand theyve got to maintain the social distance.Download and subscribe to the Washington Football Talk PodcastSpecifically, he touched on the quarterbacks and kickers as groups in which he wants to make sure there is always at least one person available in case of an outbreak. When Washington had four quarterbacks on the roster, it was a little easier to manage. Yet with Kyle Allen out for the season, Smith, Dwayne Haskins and Steven Montez all must be aware of their surroundings and exposure at all times.While some coaches considered the idea of quarantining one quarterback away from the others in order to guarantee the whole position isnt impacted, Rivera has not implemented that style. He still wants all the quarterbacks to be in the meetings and gain reps. But, precautions are still being taken.We didnt necessarily stash them away and keep them in touch virtually. We did have them in meetings. We did have them out at practice, but again weve tried to make sure we maintain that social distancing, Rivera said.I think thats really important.

Report: Bradley Beal Is Heat's No. 1 Target If Giannis Antetokounmpo Stays With Bucks
11/30/2020 6:28pm

Report: Beal is Heats No. 1 target if Giannis stays with Bucks originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonIts no secret that the Heat are in pursuit of two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, whether in free agency next summer or in a trade. After making it to the NBA Finals without him,Miami might surpassthe Lakers and Clippers for the titlewith Antetokounmpo in the fold.But if they come up empty-handed, they would apparently pivot to trying to acquire Wizards star, Bradley Beal.If Giannis Antetokounmpo signs a max extension with the Bucks, Washington guard Bradley Beal becomes the No. 1 Heat target if or when he becomes available, according tothe Miami Heralds Barry Jackson.The Heats interest remains very high, according to a source with direct knowledge.Jackson went on to suggest a trade for Beal, who has three years left on his contract player option for the third, would include Tyler Herro, eitherDuncan Robinson or Precious Achiuwa and a future first-round pick. Miami would also have to send someone like Kelly Olynyk to get money to work, but the centerpiece of the deal would be Herro and another promising, young player.Beal would give the Heat something they were missing in the NBA Finals against the Lakers: shotmaking outside of Jimmy Butler.Herro proved to be a capable scorer in big moments and helped that team get to the Finals, but he struggled to regain his rhythm against a Lakers team with a ton of size and physicality. Beals presence on the perimeter and ability to play pick and roll with Bam Adebayo would be a scary proposition for the rest of the league.Meanwhile, acquiring Herro and one of Robinson/Achiuwa would probablysignal a rebuild for the Wizards, whod presumably work with a young core of Herro, Robinson, Deni Avdija and Rui Hachimura.It takes two teams to pull off a trade, though. The Wizards have stated time and again how they are not interested in trading Beal, and Beal himself hascommittedto building a winner with the Wizards.Should the Heats attempts at Beal come up short, Jackson reports theyll pivot to Pacers star, Victor Oladipo.
