The Tennessee Titans have placed rookie cornerback Kristian Fulton on the COVID-19 list this afternoon. Fulton is now the fifth player to land on the list following the team’s 31-30 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Fulton joins Kamalei Correa, DaQuan Jones Beau Brinkley and Tommy Hudson on the COVID-19 list.
The Titans have more positive cases on the coaching staff. Outside linebackers coach Shane Bowen did not travel with the team last weekend due to testing protocols.
The outbreak has caused the rescheduling of this week’s Titans-Steelers matchup, which was originally scheduled for Sunday. After talks of playing on Monday or Tuesday, more positive tests coming through today forced the NFL’s hand.
The league has yet to make an announcement on rescheduling the game, but most expect this to simply become the bye week for both Tennessee and Pittsburgh, with the game potentially shifting to week seven.
At this point, you just hope things get under control before next week’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
