Much of the focus and worry about the Buffalo Bills' game in Tennessee this coming Sunday was centered around the Titans and their 18 positive COVID-19 cases over the last week.

Now, a potentially new threat to the game comes from the Bills' recent opponent, the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders have reportedly placed defensive tackle Maurice Hurst on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Him being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list does not necessarily mean he has tested positive for COVID-19. Players can be put on the reserve/COVID list if they have tested positive for the virus or have been in close contact with someone who has been infected.

The Las Vegas Review Journal is reporting that Hurst has tested positive for COVID-19. He played 35 snaps against the Bills this past week in a 30-23 loss at Allegiant Stadium.

Last week, the Minnesota Vikings' facilities closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, because they had just played the Titans the previous Sunday.

The Vikings had no positive COVID-19 tests in their organization and their facilities were allowed to re-opened last Thursday.

A similar protocol could be in store for the Bills come Wednesday.
