Titans’ COVID count at 24 after two more positives
Another positive COVID-19 test Tuesday is forcing the Tennessee Titans to cancel their planned return to the field on Wednesday.
ESPN reported two players tested positive after the Titans had two consecutive days with no new cases. There is concern the Week 5 games against the Buffalo Bills will not take place.
A total of 24 players and personnel have now tested positive for COVID-19 since Sept. 24.
Coming off of a forced bye week prompted by 16 total positive tests for the coronavirus, the Titans were cleared to reopen their team facility and hold a walk-through practice on Wednesday, eight days after the NFL first closed Saint Thomas Sports Park.
The Titans were scheduled to host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. That Week 4 game was switched to a bye for both teams as the coronavirus count climbed throughout the week.
Tennessee has placed 11 players on the reserve/COVID list so far this season, including offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, linebacker Kamalei Correa, cornerback Kristian Fulton, wide receiver Adam Humphries, defensive lineman DaQuan Jones, defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, wide receiver Cameron Batson, tight end Tommy Hudson, fullback Khari Blasingame, cornerback Greg Mabin and long-snapper Beau Brinkley.
