The Pittsburgh Steelers-Tennessee Titans game will not be played during Week 4 following two additional positive coronavirus tests among the Titans, the NFL announced Thursday.
According to a statement from the NFL, one additional Titans player and one personnel member tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. That comes after four players (starting nose tackle DaQuan Jones, linebacker Kamalei Correa, long-snapper Beau Brinkley and practice squad tight end Tommy Hudson) and five team personnel members tested positive earlier this week. Vrabel said Wednesday that some of the players who tested positive were experiencing flu-like symptoms.
“The decision to postpone the game was made to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel,” the NFL said in its statement. “The Titans facility will remain closed and the team will continue to have no in-person activities until further notice.”
Titans-Steelers game this week is being rescheduled for later this season, per source.
There were two more positive tests in Tennessee — one player, one personnel.
