The COVID-19 outbreak within the Tennessee Titans organization appears to be slowing.
Good news from Titans camp:

The Titans have had consecutive days in which no new positives have emerged after team-wide testing.
This is the best news the organization has had since the first reports of positive tests popped up last week. At least 16 people in the organization tested positive for the coronavirus. The outbreak led to the postponement and re-scheduling of the Titans-Steelers Week 4 game and threatened to impact Titans-Bills in Week 5. However, back-to-back days with no positive tests suggests the team is on the right track to play host to the Bills this coming Sunday.
Up next for the Titans is returning to their practice facility. The first hurdle to clear in order to get there was getting two straight days of testing without positive results. Let’s see if this continues to trend in the right direction.
We’ll keep an eye on the Titans situation as it develops. The Bears aren’t scheduled to travel to Tennessee for their game against the Titans in Week 9. If things continue at their current trajectory, my worries regarding the chances of that game getting played will eventually subside.
