While in the NBA they set up a “bubble” and thus the league managed to “escape” from the corona virus, in the NFL – the American Football League – a similar step could not be taken, due to the number of teams (32) and the very high number of people in each. And tonight (Tuesday), well, a first crisis was discovered in senior sports in the United States.
Three players and five other Tennessee Titans teammates were found positive for the Corona virus, just two days after it played against the Minnesota Vikings. As a result, the activities of both teams have been suspended and they will not be able to train in their compound at least until Saturday.
As a result, two games in the fourth round of the NFL are now in great doubt – between the Tennessee and Pittsburgh Steelers and between the Minnesota and Houston Texans – games scheduled to take place this coming Sunday. “All decisions will be made when our priorities are at the top of the issue of security and health,” said an official statement from the league, which as mentioned has to deal with the first major crisis.
The Titans will not be allowed in their building until Saturday. Everything will be done remotely.
This is going to be a big challenge for the organization and the league.
