Titans rookie cornerback Kristian Fulton appears to be the fifth player reported to have tested positive for COVID-19 early Thursday morning, along with one more staff member, causing the NFL to delay Tennessee’s upcoming matchup with Pittsburgh to an undetermined time in the future.
Fulton joins Kamalei Correa, DaQuan Jones, Beau Brinkley, and Tommy Hudson on the Reserve/COVID list.
Fulton and Jones stand out as potentially the most impactful players if they have to miss any time. They’ll need to follow the NFL’s return to play protocols before they’re allowed back at practice. The Titans may have caught a bit of a break with no game this week given the injuries they are dealing with in addition to these positive tests.
Obviously, our thoughts are with the players and staff members who have contracted the virus, and we wish them all a speedy recovery.
The Titans are officially on their bye this week, with operations in the building suspended until further notice except for medical treatments. They will continue to test all personnel every day and hope that no one else comes back positive.
