We have some good news to pass along this morning.
The Tennessee Titans all tested negative for COVID-19 per source. This is a great step towards getting Tuesdays game played. The Titans are trying to get into their facility by Saturday afternoon.— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) October 9, 2020
This means that currently, the game scheduled for Tuesday between the Titans and Bills is currently on track to be played. These results come from the Thursday morning round of tests, and put the Titans on track to re-open their facility on Saturday. That would allow the Titans to finally get back in their building, and prepare for the Bills game. The schedule would likely be: practice Saturday and Sunday, walkthrough on Monday, and be ready to play on Tuesday night.
As you already know, one day of negative test results does not mean the team is totally out of the woods with this outbreak. We’ve seen this before. Here’s to hoping it goes better this time around.
It’s worth noting that the more amount of time that has passed since the team was last together, the odds of continued positive tests popping up theoretically go down. Fingers crossed.
If today’s test results come back negative tomorrow, the Titans are expected to return to Saint Thomas Sports Park for the first time in two weeks. What a breath of fresh air that would be!
If we receive more good news tomorrow, we should get an injury report on Saturday. That would deliver a clearer picture of who may and may not be ready to play on Tuesday. In addition to having 14 players on the Covid/Reserve list, the Titans had been dealing with some injuries as well.
We will be keeping an eye on the testing data over the next few days. Check back for updates.
