Well this is a strange one. Paul Kuharsky and Buck Reising are reporting that Shane Bowen was not with the Titans in Minnesota yesterday:
This is an interesting development and a new nugget of information. Reports of Bowen’s absence did not surface pregame. Bowen doesn’t formally hold the title of defensive coordinator, but Mike Vrabel recently confirmed that Bowen is speaking to the leader of the defense throughout the game.
Kuharsky later mentioned on the Midday 180 that Bowen is in the COVID protocol.
We will monitor developments on this situation. Be sure to check back for updates.
