The Tennessee Titans announced that quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, along with tight end Geoff Swaim and linebacker Justin March-Lillard.
Tannehill, Swaim and March-Lillard join a growing list of Titans players added to the reserve/COVID-19 list since Monday, a group that now totals seven.
Outside linebacker Harold Landry, defensive lineman Anthony Rush, linebacker Nick Dzubnar and running back Jeremy McNichols are the other players current on the list.
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel announced he tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday morning following the team’s preseason win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Adding to fears over an outbreak, Bucs kicker Ryan Succop tested positive for the virus after having dinner with Titans players last week.
However, ESPN’s Turron Davenport reported on Wednesday that none of the players who dined with Succop have tested positive as of yet, although he didn’t say specifically which players attended.
General manager Jon Robinson told reporters on Thursday that the team is 97 percent vaccinated. All coaches, staff and players have been required to wear masks upon entering since the start of this week.
The Titans finish the preseason on Saturday against the Chicago Bears and will then cut their roster down to 53 players on Aug. 31, 12 days before their season opener against the Arizona Cardinals.
