National Football League reschedules postponed Titans-Steelers game for Week 7

National Football League reschedules postponed Titans-Steelers game for Week 7

Head coach Mike Zimmer will extend walk-through and practices times on Thursday and Friday in an attempt to make up for lost time after the team closed their facility Tuesday and Wednesday after learning that three Titans players and five staffers had tested positive. Well, that might be changing soon.

The game-originally scheduled for Sunday-was postponed to either Monday or Tuesday following news multiple Titans players tested positive for COVID-19.

The move reportedly means that no players or coaches will be allowed in the team's facilities until then.

Unlike NHL, NBA and Major League Soccer teams, NFL teams are not operating 24/7 within a single, league-wide "bubbled" environment.

Team sources confirmed to ESPN that the Titans will prepare for this week's game primarily through virtual film-study meetings.

The Vikings have not had any positive coronavirus tests since playing the Titans in Week 3. He was placed on the COVID list Saturday and didn't play in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

"We live one week at a time, and we've got an undefeated team that we're scheduled to face at the end of this week", Tomlin said.

"On Tuesday morning, the Titans COVID testing results returned three new player positives and five new personnel positives".

The Titans played on Sunday despite outside linebackers coach Shane Bowen receiving a positive test on Saturday. Vrabel said Mabin left the building and went into quarantine once his positive test came back. "We will have more information tomorrow".

The NFL's worst nightmare is coming true.

"Both clubs are working closely with the National Football League and the NFLPA, including our infectious disease experts, to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments", the National Football League said in a statement.

The NFL issued a statement saying both the Titans and Vikings are working with the league, the NFL Players Association and medical officials "to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments. with health and safety as our primary consideration".

"We're going to try and get in everything that we normally get in", Zimmer said Wednesday.

"I think everything that's happened this week is a great reminder of that for us, and I think the league and the NFLPA put together protocols that they think are going to keep everybody the safest and the healthiest".

The Vikings announced their resumption of practice shortly after the league postponed Tennessee's home game on Sunday against Pittsburgh.
