The current testing protocols in the NFL require players and coaches to be tested daily except for on gamedays. The final tests prior to gamedays occur the morning of the day prior.
According to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, all positive tests are followed by two additional tests to confirm them as positive or as false positives. Marke Maske of the Washington Post is reporting that all of these tests are confirmed positives and that sources are telling him that the Titans will take things day-to-day.
The Titans beat the Vikings 31-30 on Sunday to improve to 3-0 on the season.
