Tennessee’s outbreak stands at 20 between players and personnel. Any additional cases moving forward would put Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills in serious jeopardy.
The Titans had their Week 4 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers rescheduled to Week 7.
The NFL previously said it won’t reopen the AFC South club’s facility until they’re “convinced” the transmission event is at an end.
