It only took three weeks, but we’re gonna see how the NFL handles the coronavirus outbreak. Eight people within the Tennessee Titans organization, three players and five team personnel have tested positive for Covid-19 this morning after their game in Minneapolis this past Sunday. The Titans have shut their facility down through Saturday after the positive results, and although Minnesota hasn’t had any positive tests, they closed their facility as a precautionary measure and the team won’t return to the facility until all test results are in.
The league is working on contingency plans, and there is no word on whether the two teams games will happen this weekend, Minnesota is scheduled to be play the Houston Texans in Houston and the Titans are scheduled to play the Steelers in Nashville, which was supposed to be their first game with fans at Nissan Stadium.
