NFL power rankings 4.0: Chiefs, Mahomes solidify themselves at the top
SportsPulse: The Monday Night bout between the top two teams in the AFC was essentially a knockout with Kansas City dominating start to finish and reaffirming their status as the top team in the NFL. We reveal our risers and fallers in this week’s power rankings.
A fourth Tennessee Titans player has tested positive for COVID-19 in the most recent round of testing, an NFL spokesman confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday.
The news come one day after the league revealed that three Titans players tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday in the aftermath of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. Five Titans staffers also returned positive tests on Tuesday.
The Vikings did not have any positive tests in the most recent round and have not had any since Sunday.
On Tuesday, the Titans placed three players — defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, long snapper Beau Brinkley and practice-squad tight end Tommy Hudson — on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Titans are scheduled to host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, while the Vikings are scheduled to play on the road against the Houston Texans.
“We don’t have a lot of definitive answers,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday evening. “We’ve been given a mandate to prepare as if the game is going to be played and played on time, and so that is our mentality. We’ve gone about (Tuesday’s) business from a game-planning standpoint with that mentality, and we intend to push into tomorrow with a normal-scheduled Wednesday and our slate of work for Wednesday.”
