The NFL is satisfied that the Titans’ COVID-19 outbreak did not spread to the Vikings when the two teams played on Sunday.

As a result, the Vikings have been informed that their regularly scheduled game on Sunday at Houston is officially on, NFL Network is reporting.

Like all NFL players, the Vikings have been tested every day this week. They have had zero positive tests.

The Vikings’ facility was shut down when the Titans’ positive tests started coming in, but the team returned to practice on Thursday. The Vikings have adopted enhanced safety procedures, including masks for all players at all times.

As bad as the situation in Tennessee is, it could have been worse. Fortunately, the Vikings dodged a bullet, and they can play as scheduled.

  1. I have a sinking feeling after the game is played, the Vikings may have wished it’d been postponed. Due to the score.

  2. It can take days or even weeks for a test to show as a positive after contractioN

    This could change by tomorrow or certainly Sunday.

    Just look at the fresh positives for the other Titans players today. Everyone’s body reacts differently.

    Minny could have numerous unidentified carriers as we speak.

    The way the Vikings have been playing, they could put mail carriers in the game and they’d do just as well.
    Seriously, your point is well taken. Let’s hope they don’t have any, though.

  6. It doesn’t take weeks for a test to be positive after contracting the virus. How you would ever know how you contracted the virus if it happened weeks before you tested positive?

  7. As a Vikes fan I am enjoying all the jokes and hate about this season so far. They are horrible.

  8. A positive test can take anywhere from 4 to 14 days after exposure. We are only at day 5. I’m happy so far it seems not to have spread, but I think the NFL may be a bit premature in thinking the danger is over.

    The NFL also has that officiating crew quarantining, yet they are allowing an entire exposed team to play.

    Crazy times.

  9. Maybe being away from the coaching staff will be a good thing. They certainly aren’t coaching the players up very well this year. I’ll take a game without a safety as a win.

  10. If anything this is at least valuable information to determining a lot of metrics on the virus.

  11. I don’t think the Vikings dodged a bullet by having to play. Have you watched them play? Yikes!
