Two NFL teams are suspending in-person activities after eight people tested positive for COVID-19.
Three Tennessee Titans players and five staffers tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday morning, the league announced on Tuesday, causing the team to suspend in-person club activities beginning today.
The Minnesota Vikings, who played the Titans last Sunday, will also suspend in-person club activities.
“Both clubs are working closely with the NFL and the NLFPA, including out infectious disease experts, to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and moister developments,” the league said in a statement.
It is unclear if the positive cases will impact this week’s schedule. The Titans are scheduled to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Nashville on Sunday, while the Vikings are scheduled to travel to Houston to play the Texans.
