The Tennessee Titans have shut down ALL in-person activities immediately … after 3 players and 5 additional staffers have tested positive for COVID-19.
The Minnesota Vikings — who lost to the Titans on Sunday — will also shut down their facilities as a safety precaution … but have NOT reported any positive tests.
The Titans will reportedly not be allowed back at the team facility until Saturday — which begs the question … will they play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday without practicing????
The NFL and Players’ Association released a statement on the matter, saying, “Both clubs are working closely with the NFL and the NFLPA, including our infectious disease experts, to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments.”
“All decisions will be made with health and safety as our primary consideration. We will continue to share updates as more information becomes available.”
Tennessee also released a statement … claiming the decision to work remotely was “out of the abundance of caution.”
It’s bad news for the NFL, which has been able to play 3 regular season weeks without any major outbreaks.
Story developing …
