The NFL is again postponing the game between the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers because of further positive coronavirus tests among the Titans, moving it back to later in the season. Two more members of the Titans organization, including one player, tested positive in the results returned Thursday from testing done Wednesday, according to the NFL. That brought the total number of positive tests for the Titans this week to 11, including five players and six other members of the organization.
Sunday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans has been postponed to either Monday or Tuesday. The NFL said in a statement Wednesday that a new game date and time will be announced as soon as possible, adding that the postponement will “allow additional time for further daily COVID-19 testing and to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel.”
Three Tennessee Titans players and five staff members have tested positive for COVID-19, forcing that NFL team and the Minnesota Vikings, who played the Titans on Sunday, to suspend in-person activities. The Titans tests came back Tuesday morning, according to a joint news release from the NFL and the players union. The Vikings have not announced any positive cases.
