NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF/AP) — The Tennessee Titans’ coronavirus outbreak has grown to eight people. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has now been placed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list.
The team confirmed Thursday that Tannehill had been placed on the list, along with Geoff Swaim and Justin March-Lillard.
GM Jon Robinson says the team is 97% vaccinated and is taking precautions.
Last month, The Associated Press reported that Tannehill said he had no intention of getting vaccinated against COVID, but the NFL’s extensive protocols for unvaccinated players ultimately changed his mind. Tannehill said at the start of training camp that he was in the process of being vaccinated.
Head coach Mike Vrabel also announced last week that he had tested positive for the virus. Earlier this week, Vrabel said he is feeling almost non-symptomatic after receiving a monoclonal antibody treatment under doctor’s advice. He remains in quarantine at his home.
The Titans will play the Chicago Bears this Saturday at Nissan Stadium.
