At least eight members of the Tennessee Titans, including three players, have tested positive for coronavirus this week, marking the first outbreak in the NFL.
The NFL issued a statement on Tuesday confirming the new cases, adding that the Titans and the Minnesota Vikings, the team they played on Sunday, have immediately suspended all in-person activities.
“On Tuesday morning, the Titans COVID testing results returned three new player positives and five new personnel positives,” the statement read. “Both clubs are working closely with the NFL and the NFLPA, including our infectious disease experts, to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments. All decisions will be made with health and safety as our primary consideration.”
