There’s been another positive COVID-19 test with a Tennessee Titans player, which now puts their game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in serious jeopardy.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the positive result on Thursday morning, and added that another inconclusive test from Wednesday had also returned as a positive result.
The NFL is evaluating options for the #Titans' game Sunday against the #Bills. Nothing final. But Tennessee's ability to play in 3 days is obviously in doubt. The facility remains closed. https://t.co/P811c3B8q8

The Titans cannot reopen their facility until after they have two days of no positive results.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported Thursday morning that the option of playing the game Monday or Tuesday is apparently being discussed.
I’m told by #Titans and #Bills players they were told there is an option of playing their Sunday game on Monday or Tuesday in Nashville. If that happens, Thursday night’s game between the Chiefs at Bills would be moved to Saturday. This all just being discussed.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott told the media on Wednesday that his team is preparing to play the game until told otherwise.
