Three Titans Players Test Positive For COVID-19

This morning news broke that three Tennessee Titans players and five personnel have tested positive for COVID-19.  The Titans and the Minnesota Vikings, who played the Titans on Sunday, both suspended in-person club activities.  This puts their upcoming games at risk of being postponed while they cannot practice in-person and have to do additional testing before clearing players.

We now know who the three players who tested positive for coronavirus are because the Titans placed them on the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 List.  They are defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, long snapper Beau Brinkley and tight end Tommy Hudson.

We will see if any more positive tests arise from the additional testing that is happening and I will do updates on this site if there are any.


DaQuan Jones, Beau Brinkley and Tommy Hudson have been added to the NFL Football Positive List for COVID-19. Visit that link to see all NFL players that have tested positive or have been added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list to date.


UPDATE - Tennessee Titans Linebacker Kamalei Correa was also added to the Reserve/COVID list on Wednesday.  There is also an additional player that has tested positive, but the name has not been revealed.  Due to this, the NFL has postponed the Titans game this week vs. Pittsburgh.


UPDATE -Tennessee Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton was added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.  On Friday 10/2, it was revealed that two additional tests came back as positive.

UPDATE 10/2 - The two additional test results were wide receivers Adam Humphries and Cameron Batson.  There are now a total of seven Tennessee Titans that are currently on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

UPDATE 10/3 - There were three additional positive tests for the Titans, with one being a player and two being staff members. There are now 16 total positive tests, with eight being players.

UPDATE 10/3 - Defensive End Jeffery Simmons was the player from earlier today who tested positive and has been added to the Reserve/COVID-19 List

UPDATE 10/4 - Fullback Khari Blasingame tested positive and is the ninth Titan to be confirmed positive for COVID-19.

UPDATE 10/7 - After a few days of negative tests, two Tennessee Titans players tested positive.  One of those players was revealed to be wide receiver Corey Davis.  This puts the Titan's game this week in jeopardy as well.

UPDATE 10/8 - One of the positives from yesterday was inconclusive, but now that test is a confirmed positive from this morning.  This player has not been named, but should be placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list soon.

UPDATE 10/8 - The Tennessee Titans placed tight end MyCole Pruitt and practice squad defensive back Breon Borders on the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Atlanta Falcons' A.J. Terrell Positive for COVID-19

Atlanta Falcons rookie cornerback A.J. Terrell has been placed on the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 List after testing positive for COVID-19 on Friday according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

A.J. Terrell was Atlanta's first round pick this year and earned a starting role with the team.  He will miss Sunday's game and is the first NFL player to test positive during the season.

No other players tested positive on Friday and contact tracing will be used to determine who came in contact with A.J. Terrell.  If Saturday's tests come back negative and other players have no symptoms, they will be able to play on Sunday.  The test results of those players should be available Sunday morning.

Golfer Sam Horsfield Positive for COVID-19, Withdraws from U.S Open

PGA Golfer Sam Horsfield tested positive for COVID-19 and was forced to withdraw from this week's U.S. Open.

Sam posted the following message on social media: 

"Unfortunately, despite testing negative last Thursday prior to travelling to New York, I have subsequently tested positive for Covid-19 at the U.S. Open testing centre and have therefore had to withdraw from the tournament.

 It goes without saying that I am hugely disappointed to not have the opportunity to play in my fourth U.S. Open, but clearly the safety of the tournament and other players is paramount. I want to wish everyone all the best for a great week at Winged Foot and thank all the staff at the USGA and PGA Tour in helping me navigate the situation.

I am pleased to say that I am currently asymptomatic and feeling well, but in line with CDC guidelines, I will be notifying those I have been in contact with and self-isolating until I can produce a negative test with a view to returning to tournament play ASAP."

Sam Horsfield will be replaced by Rory Sabbatini in the U.S. Open.  He is the 2nd golfer that had to withdraw from the U.S Open due to COVID-19 with Scottie Scheffler testing positive earlier this week.

Sam Horsfield is the tenth PGA golfer to test positive for COVID-19 and has been added to the PGA Golfer Positive List for COVID-19. Visit that link to see all PGA golfers that have tested positive to date.

Scottie Scheffler Ninth PGA Golfer With COVID-19

Rookie PGA Tour golfer Scottie Scheffler withdrew from the U.S. Open today after testing positive for COVID-19.  He is the ninth PGA Tour golfer to test positive for COVID-19 and the first positive test in six weeks.  Scottie tested positive at home and The United States Golf Association said that he is asymptomatic.

Branden Grace will be replacing Scottie Scheffler in the U.S. Open, which is somewhat ironic because he was the last PGA Tour golfer to test positive for coronavirus.

Scottie Scheffler is currently ranked 29th in the world and has been playing great lately, so this
is a tough break for him.

Scottie Scheffler has been added to the PGA Golfer Positive List for COVID-19. Visit that link to see all PGA golfers that have tested positive to date.

Astros' Jose Urquidy Reveals Battle With COVID-19

Astros starting pitcher Jose Urquidy has been out since the season began after testing positive for COVID-19 at the start of Summer Camp.  Jose Urquidy revealed that he was in quarantine for 35-40 days after four additional positive tests.

While in quarantine, he was unable to do any throwing, so he had to build up his arm strength after coming out of quarantine.

He was quoted as saying, "It’s really been frustrating for me. I wanted to be here with my teammates from the beginning of the season. It’s just unfortunate I wasn’t able to [because of] the situation with COVID, but it is what it is."

Jose Urquidy started Saturday's game and going into the game was expected to throw about 50-60 pitches.  He ended up throwing 63 pitches in 3 and 2/3 innings while giving up 4 hits and 2 earned runs.

Jose Urquidy has been added to the MLB Baseball Positive List for COVID-19. Visit that link to see all MLB players that have tested positive to date.
