The Tennessee Titans-Pittsburgh Steelers matchup won’t be played this week. It is the first game postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Thursday that the NFL is rescheduling the matchup for later in the season after an additional Titans player and one staff member tested positive for COVID-19 during Wednesday’s round of testing, per a source informed of the decision.
The league confirmed the plan to push the game following the outbreak in Tennessee.
“The decision to postpone the game was made to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel,” the NFL said in a statement. “The Titans facility will remain closed and the team will continue to have no in-person activities until further notice.”
