SJ - September 30, 2020
Sunday's Titans-Steelers game has officially been postponed.
On Tuesday, news came out that three players and five members of the Titans organization had tested positive for COVID-19. On Wednesday morning it was reported that the Titans had another player test positive during the latest round of testing.
The Titans and the Vikings, who played the Titans this past Sunday, had their facilities locked down following the positive tests. As of the time of this post, nobody on the Vikings has tested positive and they're still scheduled to play the Texans.
Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Titans is being postponed per multiple sources. They are considering all options to reschedule, Monday night as one of them. This will all be based on test results.

One more #Titans player learned early this morning he tested positive in Tuesday’s round of COVID-19 testing, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. All of Tuesday’s other tests in Tennessee -- and all tests for the #Vikings -- came back negative this morning.

This was bound to happen at some point. The good news is that it's a small amount of players so far and hopefully they're able to isolate those players to prevent further spread.
Don't expect this to cancel the NFL season, despite the softest of us who would love to see that happen.
