NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Tennessee Titans COVID-19 outbreak continues to grow, as the organization announced on Saturday that defensive end Jeffery Simmons has tested positive, along with two additional staff members.
This now brings the total number of players to nine, and that doesn’t included offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson who has been on the Reserve/COVID-19 list since September 6th.
Simmons has been the brightest spot for the Titans defense in 2020. The 2019 1st round pick is only in year two with the Titans, but is considered to be a leader on the defensive line.
Sunday’s home game against the Steelers was rescheduled for Week Seven as a result of the outbreak inside the organization. The team’s facility has been closed since Tuesday and the continued positive tests make it unclear when the team will be able to reopen it.
