According to Ian Rapoport, the Titans had no positive tests in the batch of results that came back Monday.
It’s the first time since the start of their outbreak Tennessee received no positive COVID-19 tests and Rapoport adds it’s a major step toward the team reopening their facility and playing in Week 5 against the Bills.
The team’s facility has been closed since last Tuesday and in order to reopen under the league’s COVID-19 protocols, there need to be multiple consecutive days with no positive tests.
Adam Schefter reported Sunday the team facility won’t be opened until Wednesday at the earliest as the league needs to see two consecutive days without positive tests from the team.
This represents an encouraging first step for the Titans toward achieving that goal, however, and avoiding a postponement for the second straight week.
In total, 20 members of the Titans organization have tested positive over the past week or so.
Both the NFL and NFLPA are investigating the Titans for potential violations of the COVID-19 protocols and the team could face steep discipline.
Here’s the updated list of Titans’ players on the COVID-19 list:
- OT Isaiah Wilson
- DB Greg Mabin (practice squad)
- LS Beau Brinkley
- DT DaQuan Jones
- TE Tommy Hudson (practice squad)
- OLB Kamalei Correa
- CB Kristian Fulton
- WR Adam Humphries
- WR Cameron Batson (practice squad)
- DL Jeffery Simmons
- FB Khari Blasingame
The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.
