The NFL has postponed Sunday’s game between the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers to al-low for additional time for COVID-19 testing.
In a statement released yesterday, the league said it wants to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel.
The NFL said the game will be played on either Monday or Tuesday. The date and time will be an-nounced “as soon as possible.”
The postponement comes after at least three Titans players and five employees for the team tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Coach Mike Vrabel said some of those who tested positive are ex-periencing flu-like symptoms, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Following the positive tests, the NFL said the Titans would suspend in-person club activities, as would the Minnesota Vikings, who played the Titans on Sunday.
The Vikings said in a statement Tuesday that none of their players or personnel members have tested positive for the virus since their game.
“Both clubs are working closely with the NFL and NFLPA, including our infectious disease experts, to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments,” the NFL said.
