The NFL’S first COVID-19 scare of the young 2020 sea­son might scrap two games this week. The league and the NFL Play­ers As­so­ci­a­tion on Tues­day morn­ing jointly con­firmed re­ports that three Ten­nessee Ti­tans play­ers, plus five Ti­tans club per­son­nel, have tested pos­i­tive for COVID-19. The Ti­tans de­feated the Vik­ings 31- 30 this past Sunday at U. S. Bank Sta­dium in Min­neapo­lis. Both the Ti­tans and Vik­ings im­me­di­ately closed their work places early Tues­day morn­ing. Per re­ports, all play­ers, coaches and team per­son­nel upon ar­rival at team head­quar­ters were tested for COVID-19, then di­rected to turn around and re­turn straight to their re­spec­tive homes, and iso­late. There was no im­me­di­ate word from the league or the play­ers union, nor from the Ti­tans or Vik­ings, as to the chances their re­spec­tive games this week will be played. On Sunday, Ten­nessee is sched­uled to host Pitts­burgh, while the Vik­ings are to play in Hous­ton.
