The Tennessee Titans halted in-person training, workouts and other club activities Tuesday morning after three players and five personnel staff tested positive for COVID-19. It is the first coronavirus outbreak of the NFL season.
“Out of an abundance of caution, the organization has decided to work remotely as we follow NFL protocols related to the COVID-19 virus,” the team said in a statement. “Several tests have come back positive and are working through the process of confirming them. We will have more information.”
The Minnesota Vikings who the Titans played on Sunday have also suspended all team activities. The Vikings have yet to report any positive cases.

“Both clubs are working closely with the NFL and the NFLPA, including our infectious disease experts, to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments,” the NFL said in a statement. “All decisions will be made with health and safety as our primary consideration.”
At this time it is unclear if Sunday’s Titans vs Steelers game will be played. Steelers spokesperson Burt Lauten said the team has been told to continue preparations for Sunday’s game until informed otherwise.
