NASHVILLE – The Titans added tight end MyCole Pruitt and defensive back Breon Borders to the team's Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.
Pruitt is on the team's 53-man roster, while Borders is on Tennessee's practice squad.
Also on Thursday, practice squad tight end Tommy Hudson was suspended by the league without pay for six games for violating the NFL's Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances. Hudson is currently on the team's Reserve/COVD-19 list.
Earlier, the team placed receiver Corey Davis, defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons, receiver Adam Humphries, cornerback Kristian Fulton, outside linebacker Kamalei Correa, defensive lineman DaQuan Jones, fullback Khari Blasingame and long snapper Beau Brinkley from the 53-man roster to the COVID-19 list, along with Hudson and receiver Cameron Batson from the team's practice squad. Those players joined tackle Isaiah Wilson and practice squad cornerback Greg Mabin on the team's COVID-19 list. Wilson was placed on the COVID-19 list on September 6 and Mabin was placed on the list prior to the trip to Minnesota in Week 3.
The new reserve list category was created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.
Last Monday, Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said Titans outside linebackers coach Shane Bowen did not travel with the team to Minneapolis for the Week 3 game due to COVID-19 testing protocols. Vrabel said other team personnel have also tested positive for the coronavirus as well but he's declined to reveal names.
The Titans vs Steelers game originally set for Week 4 on Friday was rescheduled for Sunday, October 25th.
The Titans are scheduled to face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
