COVID vaccination choices may be personal for Titans, but decisions could impact entire team

Only hours after the NFL and NFL Players’ Association announced new protocol modifications for vaccinated players earlier this week, Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan took to Twitter to air his disappointment.
