NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — After two consecutive days without any additional COVID-19 cases within the Tennessee Titans organization, at least one additional Titans player tested positive for the virus Wednesday morning, the NFL reports.

The league initially stated two new Titans players had received positive results, but as of Wednesday afternoon, the team had only added one new player to the Reserve/COVID-19 list — wide receiver, Corey Davis.

Titans Head Coach Mike Vrabel said Tuesday he hoped the team could return to practice at their facility Wednesday, but with the new positive cases that will not happen.

The Titans facility has been closed since Sept. 29, when all in-person activities were suspended after three players and five staffers received positive test results.

Over a little more than a week, at least 19 people within the Titans organization have tested positive, including ten players and nine staffers.

The NFL made the decision last week to postpone the Titans home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers until later in the season. The game was originally scheduled for Oct. 4 at Nissan Stadium.

The Titans are still scheduled to play the Buffalo Bills at Nissan Stadium at noon Sunday, Oct. 11.
