September 30th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The NFL may be up against its most serious COVID-19-related challenge yet, as a potential outbreak has caused two teams to suspend in-person club activities for the week. According the NFL Network, the Tennessee Titans had three new player positives and five new personnel positives for COVID-19. Then on Wednesday, it was learned one more Titans player tested positive on Tuesday, bringing the total number of positive tests to nine. All other tests for both the Titans and the Vikings came back negative, however.

Later Wednesday morning, the league announced that the game between the Steelers and Titans would be postponed, and will likely be rescheduled for next Monday or Tuesday. Titans coaches have told players that they will be prepared to face the Steelers, even if they are unable to physically meet as a team until Saturday's walkthrough, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo.

Since the Titans played at the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, both teams suspended all in-person club activities starting Tuesday
