NFL chaos looms as COVID-19 spreads to three teams

The NFL’s COVID-19 problem is spreading quickly.

Two Titans players tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday after two days of negative test results, MMQB.com reports. Patriots star cornerback Stephon Gilmore, as well as a Raiders player also tested positive, according to ESPN.com.

The Titans game against the Steelers was canceled last week as they had the first outbreak in the NFL with nine players and nine staff members testing positive. Tennessee was going to reopen its facilities on Wednesday, but that plan has now been halted.

The Titans were scheduled to play host to the Bills on Sunday and another postponed game could throw the NFL schedule into chaos. The Patriots game against the Broncos is also at risk with Gilmore testing positive. The Patriots played the Chiefs on Monday after that game was pushed back a day following Cam Newton also testing positive.

No Chiefs players have tested positive, yet.

Ten Raiders players were fined on Monday after attending a charity event hosted by tight end Darren Waller last week. The players were seen mask-less in photographs and videos. It is unknown which Las Vegas player tested positive.

“We weren’t perfect, but we were trying our best,” quarterback Derek Carr said at the time. “We weren’t trying to be careless or reckless.”
