The Tennessee Titans defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, but that could come with a price as Ravens players now test positive for COVID-19.
The Tennessee Titans defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and now, the Ravens are seeing a string of COVID cases within their franchise. This could become an issue if a Titans player tests positive and the Titans have to shut everything down again.
A combination of nine players and staff members have tested positive and been put on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. On Thursday, more positive tests made it the fourth straight day the Ravens have had a positive test within their team, which pushed their Thursday night game against the Steelers to Sunday.
The Ravens have already released a statement saying that they had a coach break COVID protocols, and he has since been punished. This is a similar situation the Titans saw earlier this season where they were fined $350,000.
It’s unclear right now if anyone on the Titans has the virus or if the virus was passed throughout each team during Sunday’s game. There’s a possibility we might not know until later next week, which could cause issues for other teams as well.
There is a possibility that the Titans could have another player test positive for COVID 19 at some point if a Ravens player that took the field on Sunday was contagious.
The Titans will definitely be a team that the league keeps an eye on over the next week and a half or so until the Titans pass the two week period since playing the Ravens.
Fingers crossed, the Titans don’t have to deal with another COVID outbreak for the healthy of the players and for the sake of the season. There’s a possibility the Titans have some momentum to build on from the win against the Ravens. Anything to halt that could lead to the Titans missing the playoffs.
