And now the Titans have shut down their facility again after a coach tested positive.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 11, 2020
The Titans barely got back inside Saint Thomas Sports Park before having to vacate it again. The good news here, if there’s any at all, is that Tuesday’s game is still scheduled to take place as of now. Contact tracing will be key in determining the overall safety of the situation, per Tom Pelissero.
Contact tracing is underway to determine if the #Titans' latest COVID-19 case -- a coach, who wasn't in the building for nearly 2 weeks -- is related to its outbreak ... and whether Tuesday's game against the #Bills can move forward. @NFLGameDay @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/OGdKxXxkDi— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) October 11, 2020
The Titans haven’t been in their building for nearly two weeks. It’s unlikely that this positive test is a result of yesterday’s practice. Is it possible that this unnamed coach is part of the original outbreak? That seems like a stretch, but it’s possible. We’ll never know.
Under the new protocols, it’s quite unlikely that the virus was spread around the Titans building yesterday.
A decision whether or not to go forward with the game is expected in a few hours. The contact tracing results (underway now) will play a huge role in how that decision is made.
