Two more Tennessee Titans players test positive for COVID-19

Two more Tennessee Titans players test positive for COVID-19”

The new positive tests put into question Tennessee's scheduled game Sunday against Buffalo (4-0), a matchup between two of the NFL's six remaining undefeated teams. The positives reportedly came from Tuesday's round of testing, and the team received the results on Wednesday. Instead, he'll have to try to prepare a game plan with his team possibly not back into its facility until Saturday because it needs back-to-back days of negative tests.

The franchise has continued daily testing since the NFL told the Titans to close their facility on September 29, and the league sent all 32 teams a memo Thursday with list of new protocols for clubs to follow when dealing with an outbreak or having been exposed to an outbreak during this coronavirus pandemic.

Now they're right back where they were last week, and looking at a second straight week of disruption.

ESPN reported two players tested positive after the Titans had two consecutive days with no new cases, raising concerns that their Week Five games against the Buffalo Bills will not take place.

On Wednesday, the team placed wide receiver Corey Davis on the COVID-19/reserve list. The Titans played that game leaving outside linebackers coach Shane Bowen in Nashville after a positive test result September 26, and the National Football League shut down the team facility on September 29.

Neither the Titans nor Davis has confirmed he tested positive for coronavirus.

The Titans' practice facility, which has been closed for a week, is not expected to re-open today.

The Titans have already had one game rescheduled due to their team outbreak.

The Titans' Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed and moved to Week 7 as a result of the initial outbreak.

Tennessee hasn't been together as a team since September 27, when the Titans beat the Vikings 31-30 in Minnesota.

The NFL and NFLPA are investigating whether the club was violating COVID-19 protocols before and during the outbreak, including potential mask violations in its clubhouse.

The result has seen several members of the defensive coaching staff and players test positive for the coronavirus, though coach Mike Vrabel correctly refused to assign any kind of blame.
