After being allowed back into their facility on Saturday, the Tennessee Titans suffered another COVID-19 related setback a day later after a staff member has tested positive.

The Titans have a league-high 22 players or staff with active COVID cases (after rookie Isaiah Wilson and DB Greg Mabin were removed from the COVID-19 list), and finally had two consecutive days of no new positives on Friday and Saturday before being allowed back to their practice facility.

The NFL’s battle with the virus has expanded further than Tennessee Titans organization. The New England Patriots and Denver Broncos game had to be postponed until next week due to positive COVID tests within the Patriots organization.

The NFL has started more intense contact tracing within the Tennessee Titans organization. It is possible that the game could still be played if Sunday’s case has no impact on the rest of the organization.

However, with the NFL allowing the Tennessee Titans back into the facility on Saturday, it is hard to imagine that no one else had close contact with the infected assistant coach.

It will be interesting to see if the NFL moves the Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills game to a week 18, or cancel the game altogether, if the contact tracing proves that more players could be affected.

TITANS-BILLS GAME A GO

The Titans and Bills Tuesday night game appears to be a go, despite Sunday morning’s positive test.

The Titans also activated defensive lineman DaQuan Jones and long snapper Beau Brinkley from the COVID list, dropping their total number on the list to 20.

This article will be updated as more information regarding Titans-Bills is made available.
