The Titans have been receiving nothing but positive news, the bad kind, over the past seven days but they finally got some negative news, the good kind, on Monday morning. According to Adam Schefter, the Titans had no new positive tests on Monday hopefully signaling that they’ve gotten control of the coronavirus outbreak they’ve suffered that caused them to postpone their Week 4 game against the Steelers.

Schefter also reported that the team had a total of 18 positive tests over the previous six days after one additional player and two staffers tested positive on Saturday. As of Saturday, the team had a total of eight players test positive.

As positive tests continued to add up for the Titans into the weekend, the team’s matchup with the Bills this upcoming Sunday continues to be in jeopardy but this new development without any new positives on Monday was the first step that had to happen for the game to possibly take place as scheduled.

Tennessee’s facility has been closed for the past seven days and the team will need another no new positive day on Tuesday for the facility to potentially reopen on Wednesday.

Players that have been placed on the COVID-reserve list fall into two separate categories when it comes to when they can return to the team.

If a player is asymptomatic and receives a positive test he can return either 10 days after the initial positive result or if five days have passed and the player has received two consecutive negative PCR virus tests 24 hours apart within the five-day period.

For those showing symptoms that received a positive test, they can return if at least 10 days have passed since the symptoms first appeared and at least 72 hours have passed since they last experienced symptoms.

The Titans are scheduled to host the Bills on Sunday at 1:00 PM EST.
