The Titans have placed OLB Josh Smith on the COVID-19 list. This is the second player to be placed on the list in the last few days - the first being Jack Crawford on Friday. Does this mean there is an outbreak inside the building? It is hard to say for sure because players don’t have to test positive to be placed on the list. Both guys could have just been in contact with someone who has the disease.
This is going to be something that is going to pop up during this season unfortunately. The good news is that the NFL has procedures in place for this exact scenario. The Titans seem to be taking this extremely seriously when you listen to guys talk about the job Dennis Kelly is doing making sure they are in compliance.
Either way, here’s to hoping that Smith or whoever he was in contact with that has COVID makes a full recovery.
