NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Titans' facility is closed once again after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.

St. Thomas Sports Park reopened on Saturday after 11 days.

The Titans released the following statement:

"This morning we learned that a staff member tested positive. We have temporarily closed our facility and are in communication with the league on the next steps."

More than 20 people within the Titans organization have tested positive for COVID-19 so far.

Earlier this week, the Titans-Bills game which was originally scheduled for October 11 was moved to Tuesday night. It is unclear if the game will be rescheduled again or not.

Sunday night the team said it received permission from the NFL to practice with limited players, coaches and support staff earlier in the afternoon.
