The Titans have become the NFL’s first test case for dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak, and now we know which players are involved.
The list is for players who either test positive or are quarantining after being in contact with someone who has, and teams aren’t allowed to specify which. But it’s already been reported that the Titans had three players and five staffers test positive, causing them to shutter their facilities until Saturday.
The fact the players are from three different position groups makes contact tracing a bigger task, as opposed to if three players from one position had been the positive tests.
Titans outside linebackers coach and defensive play-caller Shane Bowen didn’t travel with the team to Minnesota for Sunday’s game after he was placed in the COVID-19 protocol.
