Negatives in New England, Nashville positive for NFL Week 5

Zero positive COVID-19 results from Thursday testing indicate Week 5 will move forward with an adjusted scheduled, according to multiple reports Friday.

No new positive tests for the Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs could allow for the all games to be played this week. The Titans, who’ve had two dozen positive tests for the virus counting players and staff, could return to the team facility for the first time in nine days. A formal practice has not been held in Nashville since two days before the Titans played the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3.

The Titans are now tentatively scheduled to play their Week 5 game on Tuesday against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills then would play their scheduled Thursday game against the Chiefs next Sunday to keep the Week 6 schedule largely intact.

New England, which flew in and out of Kansas City on Monday night, hosts the Denver Broncos on Monday. That game had been scheduled for a 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday before Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday.

The Chiefs have not returned any positive tests since last week — practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu was the only positive — but the incubation period for the coronavirus varies greatly. Only three days have passed since the Chiefs and Patriots met at Arrowhead Stadium.
