Another morning, another round of bad news for the Tennessee Titans. The organization had another positive COVID-19 test today, following a reported two from yesterday. Corey Davis was added to the COVID/reserve list yesterday afternoon.
Now both Pelissero and Schefter are reporting yet another positive.
Another #Titans player has tested positive for COVID-19 and an inconclusive test from the previous day is also positive, per source.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) October 8, 2020
There is another Titans’ player positive test this morning and the inconclusive positive test from yesterday is now a confirmed positive, per source. The Titans’ facility remains closed and the prohibition on in person activities continues.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 8, 2020
For the Titans to be able to play the Bills on Sunday, they need two consecutive days of negative tests in order to reopen their facility. That’s obviously seemingly more and more unlikely, so it will be interesting to see what kind of contingency plan the league will come up with.
In total, Tennessee should have 14 names on the COVID list later today.

The Titans saw their game with the Pittsburgh Steelers rescheduled last weekend to week seven. The league shifted bye weeks around to make its schedule work, but now things are about to get a lot more complicated.
Making matters even worse? The Bills play on Thursday night next week, set to take on the Chiefs.
One major issue with this game: The #Bills play Thursday night and the #Titans are out of byes. The NFL is reviewing and trying to figure out a way to play the game. So much up in the air. https://t.co/W4ezA4817e— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 8, 2020
Expect some official word from the league soon.
