    Yeah, like I said in another thread, I'm starting to feel like the season is going to be over in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully not, but it's trending the wrong direction.

    EDIT: That said, we had a generally solid first 3 weeks..... so maybe they get ahead of things quick enough and there won't be a wide spread impact on the league.

    Players with covid... not rest of the team that doesnt have it. Guess if it's a wide breakout you start wondering if you can even field a team though.

    1 player having covid doesnt cancel a game. Falcons #1 draft pick has covid and they played last week and playing this week.

    But the player with covid for ATL didn't travel on the flight with the team like just happened with NO...the main problem will be if anyone else tests positive.

    I could see the NO/DET game at least being postponed until Mon/Tues, but I guess we will find out tomorrow

    Another Titans player tests positive for Covid-19 so Titans can not open facility today.

    What happens now?
    They can’t use another bye!
    If the team can’t play, does the NFL just give them a lose?

    Stephon Gilmore DB, New England Patriots
    Patriots placed CB Stephon Gilmore on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Gilmore joins Cam Newton as the only Patriots players to test positive. The Patriots cancelled Wednesday’s practice and this likely rules out Gilmore for at least Week 5. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Gilmore had 11 tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble through the first four games.

    Jon Gruden HC, Las Vegas Raiders
    ESPN’s Dianna Russini reports a Raiders player tested positive for COVID-19.

    It's the first known case for the Raiders, who the NFL investigated for violating COVID-19 protocols last month. For now, this looks like a single case and not an outbreak. The Raiders are scheduled to play the Chiefs in Week 5.

    CB Stephon Gilmore test positive and was on the plane with Cam Newton and what’s worst is he played in KC and was up close talking and hugging Pat Mahomes

    & Mahomes wife is pregnant. After game handshakes may be over.
    Hopefully everyone stays healthy through this.

    This would be wise to do. Malhomes wife secured the bag.

    Mike Vrabel HC, Tennessee Titans
    Midday 180's Paul Kuharsky reports Titans players broke COVID-19 protocols by holding an informal workout after the league closed Tennessee's facility.

    The NFL and NFLPA are conducting an investigation. The Titans had two new positive tests on Wednesday, putting their Week 5 game against Buffalo in danger of not being played. Tennessee's illegal meeting away from the facility could result in the NFL penalizing them in the form of fines or draft picks.

    Corey Davis WR, Tennessee Titans
    Titans placed WR Corey Davis on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    It's the biggest name of the 11 players that tested positive on the Titans. Davis is going to miss Week 5 against Buffalo if the game is played. It's a downgrade to Ryan Tannehill's supporting cast, though Tennessee could get A.J. Brown (knee) back this week. Jonnu Smith should see a bump in targets with Davis out.

    Mike Vrabel HC, Tennessee Titans
    The Week 5 game between the Bills and Titans could be moved to Monday or Tuesday.

    Players for both teams were reportedly told delaying the Week 5 game was one option under consideration as the Titans deal with their COVID-19 outbreak. This option would no longer be viable if the Titans continue to report new COVID cases throughout the week. Moving the game to Monday or Tuesday would bump the Week 6 Thursday night Bills-Chiefs game to Saturday, October 17.

    The Titans need a draft pick to be taken from them.

    Either that or give them a lose right off the bat! Or both

    I wonder if they give them the loss does that mean the Bills get the win? Which I doubt. Or the Bills play 1 less game and standings are by win %? No matter what that will skew things.

    This could get real ugly for the Titans....


    Mike Vrabel HC, Tennessee Titans
    The Athletic's John Glennon reports the NFL on September 29 told the Titans not to conduct any in-person activities.

    The team then had an in-person session on September 30. There had been some question as to when the league told the Titans to stop all in-person activities to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. If the team had been instructed to stop those activities and held the session anyway, they could be subject to serious penalties from the NFL. The league's black sheep franchise is going to have a rough fall.

    The players shouldn't be paid I hope. Plus nix their bonuses. Hit them in the pockets.
