Following two successive times with negative evaluations, trainer Mike Vrabel was optimistic that the Titans could go back to their center on Wednesday. That can not happen today.
This places Sunday’s match against the Buffalo Bills in peril.
The 2 evaluations Wednesday brings the total of Titans players and other team members who have returned favorable coronavirus evaluations from Sept. 24 to 22.
The NFL announced last week that the match between the Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4 has been postponed until Oct. 25.
Eight players a week, one this week and 11 complete this year — defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, offensive speech Isaiah Wilson, linebacker Kamalei Correa, cornerback Kristian Fulton, wide receiver Adam Humphries, defensive lineman DaQuan Jones, long-snapper Beau Brinkley, wide receiver Cameron Batson, tight wind Tommy Hudson, fullback Khari Blasingame along with cornerback Greg Mabin — have now been set on the reserve/COVID-19 listing.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell cautioned the league’s 32 teams Monday of penalties such as possible forfeits of matches for offenses of COVID-19 protocols which induce changes in the program.
The franchise has lasted daily testing because the NFL advised the Titans to shut their center on Sept. 29, and also the league delivered all 32 teams a memo Thursday with a listing of new protocols for clubs to follow when dealing with an epidemic or having been subjected to an outbreak in that coronavirus pandemic.
