Game on: Tuesday morning returns negative COVID-19 results for Tennessee Titans

The Bills and Titans should be set to play Tuesday night.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

After a tense hour with fans checking social media over and over again, it was finally announced that the Tennessee Titans received no new positive COVID-19 results on Tuesday morning in tests conducted Monday. Typically announced between 7:45 and 8:30, it wasn’t until 9:00 a.m. EDT that news broke via Tom Pelissero.

The Buffalo Bills will face the Titans on Tuesday night in a rescheduled game at 7:00 p.m. EDT. Tennessee held their first practice in nearly two weeks Sunday with additional safety measures in place after a walkthrough Saturday.

On Sunday, the 24th member 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. Because the latest test was a coach, the decision was made to forge ahead with the game.

As a result of the COVID positives, 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 from Thursday to Monday night. The Titans’ Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed until later in the season.
