Just to follow up on our story from yesterday, the NFL has officially postponed the Steelers vs. Titans game on Sunday after an additional Titans player tested positive for Covid-19:
Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Titans is being postponed per multiple sources. They are considering all options to reschedule, Monday night as one of them. This will all be based on test results.

The good news is that all of the players on the Vikings — the Titan’s opponent last week — have all tested negative:
One more #Titans player learned early this morning he tested positive in Tuesday’s round of COVID-19 testing, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo. All of Tuesday’s other tests in Tennessee — and all tests for the #Vikings — came back negative this morning.

5 non-players in the Titans organization tested positive as well, some of them identified as coaches:
Some more on Titans’ situation …
• All 5 non-players to test positive were football staff, and part of the Minnesota traveling party.
• At least some (not sure if all) of the 5 positives were coaches.
• Those in the building this AM were told to go home around 5:15 a.m.
