The Tennessee Titans have placed three players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and added two to the team’s practice squad, the franchise announced Tuesday.
Defensive lineman DaQuan Jones and long snapper Beau Brinkley were placed on the Reserve list from the active 53-man roster, while tight end Tommy Hudson was also listed off the team’s practice squad.
Jones is the Titans’ starting nose tackle, and has eight total tackles on the season. As the team’s long snapper, Brinkley’s importance is self-explanatory.
Tennessee’s transactions come hours after the club announced it is shutting down practices this week after three players and five staff members within the organization tested positive for COVID-19.
While it is unclear when exactly the Titans will be able to return to the practice field, no decision has been made yet regarding their matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Nashville on Sunday.
The Minnesota Vikings, who the Titans played last week, also announced they are closing their practice facility indefinitely Tuesday.
The Titans also added running back D’Onta Freeman and defensive back Maurice Smith to their practice squad Tuesday.
