Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Titans is being postponed per multiple sources. They are considering all options to reschedule, Monday night as one of them. This will all be based on test results.

The announcement comes just a day after three Titans players and five team personnel members tested positive for COVID-19.
The three players — starting nose tackle DaQuan Jones, long snapper Beau Brinkley and practice squad tight end Tommy Hudson — have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
On Wednesday, Tennessee had another positive test, likely leading to the NFL’s decision to postpone Sunday’s contest.
NFL spokesman says there was one more positive test in Tennessee and no positives in Minnesota in yesterday’s round of testing.

It is the first outbreak of COVID-19 in the NFL this season.
Atlanta Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell tested positive prior to the team’s game in Week 3, but there have been no other reported positive tests.
The Titans and the Steelers are both 3-0 this season.
