Titans have no new positive tests

The COVID-19 outbreak on the Tennessee Titans may be waning.

Every Titans player who was tested on Thursday came back negative today, according to multiple reports.

A COVID-19 outbreak that hit the Titans forced them not to play last week and to delay their scheduled game for this week. But with no positives, the Titans might finally be able to play on Tuesday night against the Bills.

Many questions remain about the Titans, including just how hard the league is going to hammer the team for reported failures to follow COVID-19 guidelines. It’s possible that coach Mike Vrabel and General Manager Jon Robinson could both be suspended, that players could face discipline, and that the team could forfeit draft picks. The league is serious about demanding that health and safety protocols be followed, and it appears they weren’t followed in Tennessee.

But if the Titans have finally turned the corner on this outbreak, the players who have tested negative could get back to the facility as soon as tomorrow, and they could be back on the field in four days.

  1. It would be an absolute travesty if those once affected players were allowed to play in this game against the Bills.

  2. Should suspend both for the season and take their first round pick. That will get the message across. Otherwise, we won’t make it through the season.

  3. given the way the titans have treated this issue, the story tomorrow will be that they only tested a few players

  4. That’s good news for their health!
    That’s bad news for their record, Buffalo is going to stop them for putting them and the league through this.

  5. One has to wonder if there are no more Covid positives or if they are just SAYING there are no more. If the Buff game is put in doubt, there are major ramifications to the Titans and NFL, as a whole. Perhaps they are going in w/ ” we gotta play this game because last wks debacle to cancel the Steeler game can’t happen again”

  6. Every Titans player who was tested on Thursday came back negative today, according to multiple reports – that’s all well and good but that doesn’t look like every player was tested which means the testing wasn’t comprehensive.

  7. If teams aren’t following protocols, instead of cancelling games, why not have the team play with only those that have negative tests and not have the team have the ability to replace those that test positive?

    If a team ends up with multiple players testing positive, and they are without those players and have to play the game, they will rethink how loose they are with protocols….

  8. They shouldn’t have any positive tests. I mean…how many players do they have left that aren’t positive? 4? 5?

  9. If the punishment is going to be just a fine then don’t even bother it is clear that players don’t care about paying fines.
    This ask for forgiveness instead of Permission attitude needs to stop.
    Drop the hammer Goodell.

  10. Players and coaches getting punished for coming to work and trying to make the league billions of dollars. Wrong in my opinion especially with an imperfect testing system. Could have come from anywhere.

    The positive test folks would have to stay home and isolate. There are wait times for when the can return to be tested based on if they are asymptomatic or not. At the earliest, you can come back to get tested in 5 days if you are asymptomatic and have to have two consecutive negative tests to be cleared. Symptomatic players are 10 days and 72 hours without symptoms.

    What the Titans lineup is going to look like on Tuesday, nobody has a clue yet
