NFL POSTPONES SUNDAY’ S TITANS-STEELERS GAME

-

The NFL postponed Sunday’s game between the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers in Nashville to Monday or Tuesday after a coronaviru­s outbreak on the Titans. It is the first change to the league’s schedule during the 2020 season as it operates during the novel coronaviru­s pandemic. The league said the game “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. Details on the new game date and time on either Monday or Tuesday will be announced as soon as possible.” One Titans player tested positive for the coronaviru­s in results returned Wednesday morning, according to the NFL. That new positive test came in addition to the eight confirmed positive test results for the Titans — including three players and five other team personnel — returned Tuesday, constituti­ng the first coronaviru­s outbreak on an NFL team this season.
