Tennessee Titans Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and eight of his teammates have tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the team’s starting quarterback will miss anywhere between five and 10 days as the Titans prepare for their season opener on September 12. Fortunately, Tannehill is reportedly “feeling fine” as he quarantines away from the franchise.
“He’ll be engaged in the meetings. He’ll ready to go,” Tennessee Titans General Manager Joe Robinson told ESPN.
“He’s a pro and has played in the league for a long time. We have the utmost confidence in him and his ability to prepare.”
Tannehill is not the only prominent member of the franchise to test positive for COVID-19. Tennessee Titans Head Coach Mike Vrabel has tested positive for COVID-19 and will also spend time away from the team as it prepares for the regular-season opener.
Despite the recent outbreak, the Titans maintain that they have followed COVID-19 protocols and encourage all members of the team to get vaccinated.
“We’ve followed the protocols,” Robinson stated
“Our medical team has done an outstanding job with talking to the league and the players, coaches.”
