Titans Steelers Wont Play In Week 4

The Titans' game vs. the Steelers on Sunday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville has been postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak on the

Tennessee and Pittsburgh will NOT be playing in Week 4. after one additional player and team staffer in the Titans organization tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a statement from the National Football League, one additional Titans player and one personnel member tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. If you have any Steelers or Titans in your anticipated starting lineup this week, make sure to continue staying informed on the situation, but it appears likely that a game will be played between the two teams this week.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin called the postponement a "letdown". Now the game will not be played until later in the season.

"They wanted to play; they were preparing to play". "We understand the nature of this environment that we are in, so we're just adjusting accordingly. We worked very hard at the beginning portion of this week in preparation of what we thought was an opportunity against an undefeated team in their venue".

Is it fair to the Steelers that their game with the Titans was postponed to a later week? Both teams would have played 16 straight games as well. The Cleveland Browns would conclude that run of home games October 18.

Players and staff who have tested positive will be isolated, monitored and given all necessary medical care.

On Tuesday, the Titans placed three players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, including key players defensive captain and lineman DaQuan Jones and long snapper Beau Brinkley. They were joined Wednesday by outside linebacker Kamalei Correa. That's in addition to the eight initial positive tests and the additional positive that was reported on Wednesday.

"We've continually respected the environment we are in", he said. We made a conscious effort to be forward in our thinking and be proactive in terms of our approach.
