Report: NFL could fine Titans for outbreak response

The Tennessee Titans could be fined for the way they handled a COVID-19 outbreak within the organization, according to a report from ESPN on Monday.

The network reported that the NFL has completed its review of the Titans’ response to the outbreak, which started in late September and stretched into early October. The Titans had at least 24 players or staff members test positive for COVID-19 and needed to reschedule a pair of games because of it.

The NFL found incidents in which people were not wearing masks in the Titans’ practice facility. The league also said there was insufficient communication about player workouts away from the facility.

No individual player, coach or staff member on the Titans will be disciplined, ESPN reported. The Titans will not lose any draft picks as part of the punishment.
