The Baltimore Ravens will play the Washington Redskins in a preseason game Thursday night in the stadium, which passed initial inspections Tuesday.

“We have hired structural engineers to do a more thorough study today and tomorrow,” the Ravens said in a statement issued by Chad Steele, director of media relations.

Staff for the Ravens and ESPN, which is broadcasting the game, were evacuated immediately after the quake, but were later allowed to re-enter the stadium.
