The Tennessee Titans have been impacted by the first major impact of coronavirus this NFL regular season it was learned Tuesday.
The Titans have three players and five personnel that have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
They have been instructed to shut down all in-building events this week and players can not come to the facility. They have to plan for Sunday’s game with the Pittsburgh Steelers, which is still on for now, remotely.
The Minnesota Vikings, who lost to Tennessee in Week 3, also have shut down in-person preparation for their game Sunday at the Houston Texans.
Meanwhile, the NFL has instructed the Steelers, who are scheduled to play at Tennessee Sunday in a battle of unbeaten teams, to continue with their game prep.
That begs the question of the equality of one team having to prepare for a game remotely while the other can go through its typical game-week practices.

#Titans coaches have told players if they have to go without any work until Saturday, have a walkthrough then and play the #Steelers Sunday then that’s what they’ll have to do. No excuses. https://t.co/itr0rxkNWs
