Report: More positive COVID-19 tests for Titans

Report: More positive COVID-19 tests for Titans

Another Tennessee Titans player — and two more staff members — have tested positive for COVID-19, ESPN reported Saturday morning.

That brings the total positives in the organization to 16 — eight players and eight others.

The NFL postponed Sunday’s scheduled Titans-Pittsburgh Steelers game because of the outbreak in Tennessee. The Week 5 schedule calls for the Titans to host the Buffalo Bills, but ESPN reported that game could be in jeopardy if further tests come back with positive results.

The NFL juggled the schedule on Friday, moving the Titans-Steelers game to Oct. 25. The Steelers, originally scheduled to meet the Ravens that week, instead will play Baltimore on Nov. 1.

The shift moves the byes for the Titans and Steelers to Week 4, with the Ravens flipping their bye from Week 8 to Week 7.

The Titans are the first NFL team to experience an outbreak of the coronavirus. Their opponent last weekend, the Minnesota Vikings, returned to practice on Thursday and did so again on Friday under enhanced protocols the NFL shared with teams on Thursday night.

The most recent round of testing on Thursday and Friday showed no positive tests among Minnesota personnel, according to reports.

The Vikings will play Sunday at the Houston Texans, despite the shortened work week, NFL Network reported. The game wasn’t given the green light until Friday.
