The Pittsburgh Steelers placed defensive end Stephon Tuitt, defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs, and offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins on COVID-19 reserve Friday, the team announced.

The Steelers aren't scheduled to play until Tuesday after the NFL postponed their upcoming game because of a COVID-19 outbreak on the Baltimore Ravens.

Originally, the Steelers were slated to meet the Ravens on Thanksgiving. The contest was delayed until Sunday and then pushed back a second time. A number of Steelers players lashed out on social media over the postponement, which marked their second major scheduling change because of coronavirus concerns this season.

Tuitt, the biggest name of the three deactivated Steelers, has 32 tackles and a career-high seven sacks on the season. Buggs has seen action in six games, making one start, while Hawkins has played sparingly as a backup tackle.
