Titans see no positive COVID-19 results, Bills game still on


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) —The Tennessee Titans saw no new positive COVID-19 results in the latest round of testing on Sunday, NFL reports.

Reporter Tom Pelissero cites a source saying there were no new positives from Sunday’s round of COVID-19 testing. Right now, the Titans are on track to play Tuesday night against the Bills.

This comes after a staff member tested positive for the virus over the weekend. The team did practice on Sunday and more testing will be conducted.

The NFL has been in a juggling act moving games due to the virus. The Titans haven't played since Sept. 27 due to about two dozen COVID-19 tests. Their game with the Pittsburgh Steelers was previously postponed until Oct. 25.

"It was a roller coaster for sure," Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill said over the weekend. "Definitely the fact that we had guys with no symptoms testing positive and we had guys with full-blown symptoms getting consecutive negative tests on multiple days was really eye opening. Just the fact of we really don't know.

"So, we have to treat everyone as if they have the virus. Unfortunately, really probably lost some faith in the testing system just through everything we've been through over the past week and a half. But we said that from the beginning that testing is not going to prevent the virus from being spread, it's the way we handle ourselves with all the protocols and handle ourselves outside the building as well."
