Report: Two Titans Players Test Positive for COVID-19, Sunday's Game in Jeopardy

Two Titans players tested positive for COVID-19 after a round of testing on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The NFL and NFL Players Association are looking into whether players were working out together offsite while their facilities were closed. 

NFL Network reported Wednesday evening that one of the two positive tests is still considered inconclusive and in the process of being confirmed. 

The total number of positive cases on the Titans is now up to 20 among players and staff.

Titans WR Corey Davis was added to the team's COVID-19/Reserve list on Wednesday.

The Titans had the first coronavirus outbreak in the league but managed to report no positive tests over the last two days. Tennessee's Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed to Week 7, and Sunday's 1 p.m. ET contest against the Buffalo Bills is now in jeopardy.

The Titans have not been able to use their team facilities for more than a week, and the latest positive tests will delay that return.

On Wednesday, the NFL issued a memo warning teams about more stringent penalties for violations of COVID-19 protocols.
