Three More Titans Test Positive for COVID-19; 17 Total Infections



Three more members of the Tennessee Titans organization received positive COVID-19 tests on Saturday, brining the outbreak in that organization to at least 17 cases, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Titans had seven players on the COVID-19 Reserve List entering Saturday, with wide receiver Cameron Batson, long snapper Beau Brinkley, linebacker Kamalei Correa, cornerback Kristian Fulton, tight end Tommy Hudson, wide receiver Adam Humphries and cornerback Greg Mabin all off the active roster.

The team has not practiced or otherwise been together since Tuesday, when they first got word of a potential outbreak, with eight positive tests, including three players, and a total of 48 players and staff members contact traced between the Titans and their Sunday opponents, the Minnesota Vikings.

There have been continued positive cases since then, with players and/or staff members receiving positive results on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. There have been no positive tests amongst the Vikings. The incubation of the virus that causes COVID-19 can be as long as two weeks, but five days is the most typical response time.

The Steelers game with the Titans that was scheduled for Sunday has been re-scheduled to Oct. 25, with Pittsburgh’s Week 7 game against the Baltimore Ravens being moved back a week.
