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.
