It looks like the NFL made the correct decision in postponing the Steelers/Titans game originally scheduled to be played in Tennessee on Sunday.
According to a report, two more Titans players have tested positive for coronavirus.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the players tested positive on Friday, according to his source.
If confirmed, that would bring the number of cases in the organization to 13 with seven players and six staff members diagnosed with COVID-19.
After the Sunday game was postponed, it was believed the game would be moved to Monday or even Tuesday, but after more positive cases on Thursday, the NFL decided to postpone the game until later in the season.
On Thursday after practice, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he was “disappointed” they wouldn’t be playing but that he understands the environment everyone is currently working in.
The outbreak in Tennessee is the first in the NFL. Schefter points out if cases continue with the Titans, it could put their next game against Buffalo in jeopardy.
