A total of eight Tennessee Titans players have tested positive for COVID-19 this week after another player and two staff members tested positive Saturday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
In all, 16 members of the Titans organization — the eight players plus eight team personnel — have tested positive since the team last played on Sunday.
On Friday, the Titans announced that wide receiver Adam Humphries and practice squad receiver Cameron Batson had been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Also going on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week were starting nose tackle DaQuan Jones, linebacker Kamalei Correa, cornerback Kristian Fulton, long-snapper Beau Brinkley and practice squad tight end Tommy Hudson.
The Titans added defensive end Jeffery Simmons to the list Saturday.
Simmons has been the Titans’ most effective defensive player this season. The second-year defensive lineman has one sack and five QB hits to go along with 12 tackles, including one for a loss in three games. He tipped a pass at the line of scrimmage that resulted in an interception by outside linebacker Harold Landry to seal Tennessee’s 33-30 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2.
