The #Titans had three new player positives and five new personnel positives for COVID-19, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. Both Titans and Vikings, who hosted them Sunday, will suspend in person club activities starting today. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 29, 2020
Both teams obviously had to suspend in person activities for the day due to the positive tests from the Titans. As of now no positive tests have come from the Vikings, considering the two teams played each other last Sunday and came into close contact with one another it’s unlikely the Vikings will get out of this COVID free. So as of now the Vikings are suspending activities out of caution. Clearly this isn’t going to be good for the Titans, Vikings, or the league as a whole.
The Titans will not be allowed in their building until Saturday. Everything will be done remotely. This is going to be a big challenge for the organization and the league. — Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) September 29, 2020
I’d say a challenge is a bit of an understatement. The Titans won’t be able to practice together as a team until one day before kickoff against the Steelers. They won’t be able to run plays together, go over blocking schemes, literally nothing can be done in person. If one team can practice and the other can’t how is it fair to host a game against the two teams? Really puts one of them at a HUGE competitive disadvantage.
Soo.. The Titans aren’t allowed in their building until Saturday
