It’s beginning to get a bit ridiculous with the Tennessee Titans, who apparently are unable to follow COVID-19 protocols. On Sunday, a positive coronavirus result was returned to a coach after testing conducted Saturday. The team has closed their facility again after a brief window of being open Saturday afternoon.
The Buffalo Bills are scheduled to fly to Tennessee tomorrow for their Tuesday night game against the Titans. As of now that game is still on track to be played despite the 24th COVID-positive result in the last two weeks among the Titans. The Titans did have two consecutive days of zero positives on Friday and Saturday, which allowed them to reopen their facility.
Now two dozen members of the team tested positive for the coronavirus as the organization did a terrible job of following the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols. Players and staff in close proximity, practices held away from the facility after the organization was told to shut down and quarantine, and more breaches are sure to draw a major penalty from the NFL and have put the season on the brink of major changes.
Here is the full list of players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list:
- WR Corey Davis
- WR Adam Humphries
- DE Jeffery Simmons
- CB Kristian Fulton
- OL Kamalei Correa
- DL DaQuan Jones
- LS Beau Brinkley
- FB Khari Blasingame
- TE MyCole Pruitt
- OT Isaiah Wilson
- CB Greg Mabin (practice squad)
- CB Breon Borders (practice squad)
- WR Cameron Batson (practice squad)
As a result, the Buffalo Bills’ game against the Titans was moved from Sunday to Tuesday night, which resulted in the postponement of the Bills’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday. That game has yet to be rescheduled but it will be played somewhere “next weekend.” Losing a primetime game between two huge storylines in the NFL this year may not sit well with FOX, but they could bump the game to a potential Monday night window to smooth over the mess.
The NFL has not announced any changes to the current schedule.
