Titans to place QB Ryan Tannehill, two others on reserve/COVID list
Tennessee Titans starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, general manager Jon Robinson said Thursday.
Also being added to the list are tight end Geoff Swain and linebacker Justin March-Lillard, leaving the Titans with seven players out because of COVID protocols.
Head coach Mike Vrabel tested positive for the virus over the weekend.
While Robinson said Tannehill is “feeling fine … feeling OK,” Tannehill could miss as many as 10 days. Matt Barkley and Logan Woodside will take the snaps in practice.
Other Titans on the reserve/COVID list are linebackers Harold Landry and Nick Dzubnar, defensive lineman Anthony Rush and running back Jeremy McNichols. Despite having seven players impacted, the team is about 97 percent vaccinated, Robinson said.
The Titans are scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 12 to open the 2021 season.
