The Tennessee Titans' home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday has been postponed and will likely be rescheduled for either Monday or Tuesday, the NFL announced Wednesday, after nine members of the Titans organization tested positive for the coronavirus this week, which was the first Covid-19 outbreak in the league this season, resulting in the first postponement of an NFL game in three years.
On Tuesday, the Titans confirmed that three players and five team personnel members tested positive for Covid-19, which resulted in the closure of their facilities until Saturday, at the earliest.
On Wednesday morning, it was reported that an additional Tennessee player tested positive, bringing the total to four, including starting defensive lineman DaQuan Jones.
The NFL announced Sunday's game between the Titans and the Steelers, originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET, "will be rescheduled to allow additional time for further daily Covid-19 testing and to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel."
The league added that "details on the new game date and time on either Monday or Tuesday will be announced as soon as possible."
