The fallout from the Tennessee Titans’ rash of positive COVID-19 tests continues, but it hasn’t affected the Minnesota Vikings’ schedule. Not yet, anyway.
The league has just announced that Sunday’s game between the Titans and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Nashville is being postponed to allow for more time for testing following the positive tests. The game could be played on either Monday or Tuesday. The league will be making an announcement once they have more information.
At this point, Sunday’s contest between the Vikings and the Houston Texans in Houston is still scheduled for Sunday afternoon. The Vikings announced on Wednesday morning that their round of testing from Tuesday showed no positive tests, and while that is certainly a positive development for the team, they are not out of the woods on that front yet.
As long as the Vikings continue to not show any positive tests between now and Sunday, I would imagine that the league would keep Vikings/Texans on Sunday afternoon rather than try to move things around. Of course, it means that they may not have an opportunity to practice before they head to Houston for this game depending on when the league allows them to open their facilities back up, but that’s the way it goes, I suppose.
Again, as we get more information on this situation, we will continue passing it along to all of you.
