Titans have no new positive tests for second consecutive day

The COVID-19 outbreak on the Tennessee Titans appears to have waned.

For the second consecutive day, the Titans’ entire team was tested and there were no new positives, according to multiple reports.

That’s a very good sign that the situation has now been contained, and the spread was limited to the nine players and nine staffers who have already tested positive. Under NFL rules, a team can re-open its facility if it has two consecutive days with no new positive tests, so the Titans should be able to return to practice on Wednesday. The league will be monitoring the team’s compliance with all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, and it’s possible that the team could face league discipline if it’s found that some of those guidelines were violated.

It appears likely that the Titans will be able to host the Bills on Sunday, as previously scheduled.

  1. So if the Titans’ next game happens as scheduled, those nine players will be inactive due to the COVID protocol even if they test negative between now and Sunday?

    It depends. It they had formerly tested positive but were asymptomatic (no symptoms) and then had two negative tests prior to Sunday, there is a chance some could play. The word is that at least one player was showing symptoms but that not all were, so perhaps some will be back. Sure home Jones and Simmons make it back.

  3. Yeah its up in the air. But we have some very good players that could be out. Going to be tough sledding against a good team and potentially without a lot of starters.

    So if they can’t play in this game, why did they delay the last game?

    Because they still had people testing positive? I mean, this isn’t hard folks.
