#Titans‘ Vrabel: Says he’s told David Long will be a large part of team’s plans going forward.

The Colts will be the team most affected by the coronavirus heading into Sunday’s game. Two of their key players—RB Jonathan Taylor and DL DeForest Buckner—are currently on the COVID-19/Reserve list and, thus, will sit out of the game.
DT Denico Autry is also on the Colts’ COVID-19 list.
As for the Titans, the news surrounding the COVID-19 list is good. LB David Long, who figures to be a key contributor moving forward with Jayon Brown done for the season, was activated from the list on Saturday.
The Titans did add CB Chris Jackson to the COVID-19 list, but his role with the defense has been minimal as of late thanks to the emergence of CB Breon Borders.
Only three players on the Titans’ roster are guaranteed to miss Sunday’s game because of injuries: CB Adoree’ Jackson, TE MyCole Pruitt and WR Adam Humphries.
Two additional players, C Ben Jones and OG Rodger Saffold, are listed as questionable and will likely play.
Among the Colts players listed as questionable are OG Quenton Nelson, WR Zach Pascal and QB Philip Rivers, who is likely to play.
Practice Squad Elevations
The two players on the Titans’ practice squad who will move onto the active roster for Sunday’s game under the new COVID-19 protocols are LB Will Compton and OLB Tuzar Skipper. Both will revert to the practice squad following the game.
LS Matt Overton, who has started for the Titans since the team released Beau Brinkley, signed a contract that makes him a permanent addition to the active roster on Saturday.
