Three more members of Tennessee Titans reportedly test positive for coronavirus
Three more members of the Tennessee Titans tested positive Saturday for the coronavirus, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Citing an unnamed source, Schefter reported on Twitter that one player and two other members of the organization were found to have been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, bringing the total to 16 — eight players and eight other employees.
The NFL postponed the Titans’ home game this weekend against Pittsburgh until Week 7, when Tennessee was supposed to have a week off. It’s conceivable that the outbreak could also jeopardize next Sunday’s home game against Buffalo.
Johnny Hekker has not punted a lot this season — including not at all Sunday versus Buffalo. But the Rams veteran is always a threat to the opposition.
The latest Tennessee player to test positive has not been identified, but the previous seven are defensive lineman DaQuan Jones, long snapper Beau Brinkley, practice squad tight end Tommy Hudson, outside linebacker Kamalei Correa, cornerback Kristian Fulton, practice squad cornerback Greg Mabin, and receivers Adam Humphries and Cam Batson.
The Titans shut down their facility to in-person activities Tuesday after the first batch of positive tests. They had hoped to reopen it early next week.
