The Titans were fined $350,000 for violations of the NFL’s coronavirus protocols. The NFL has said there would be “escalated discipline” if there are further violations. A probe found the Titans didn’t follow mask mandates or communicate with players working out away from the team facility. Twenty-four members of the Titans organization tested positive for the coronavirus, leading to the postponement of their Week 4 game against the Steelers and a delay of their Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills to a Tuesday.
