Steelers-Titans postponed over positive tests

NFL

Sunday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans is being postponed, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Sources said playing the game Monday night is among the options being considered to reschedule the contest.

The postponement follows positive COVID-19 tests among the Titans from four players — including starting nose tackle DaQuan Jones, long-snapper Beau Brinkley and practice squad tight end Tommy Hudson — and five team personnel members this week.

The Titans have closed their team facilities until Saturday.

The Minnesota Vikings, who played the Titans on Sunday, had no positive results in their latest round of coronavirus testing, an NFL spokesperson told ESPN’s Dan Graziano earlier Wednesday.

The Vikings, who closed their team facilities Tuesday, play at the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Texans coach Bill O’Brien said Wednesday that they were told by the league to expect to play, adding that they had their own scare with two “false positives” before playing the Steelers last Sunday.
