UPDATE-Vikings/Titans Suspend Activities-Titans/Steelers Game Postponed
***UPDATE*** Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans has been postponed to later in the season. In a statement the NFL said that "one additional Titans team member and one personnel member tested positive for COVID-19. An announcement of the new game date will be made shortly." As of now, the Vikings game versus the Texans is still on for this weekend.

The NFL had been rolling right along with little or no reports of COVID-19 rearing its ugly head among its 32 teams. Until today...
So, what's that mean for the Vikings who just went toe-to-toe and face mask to face mask with the Titans? Their in-person club activities are also shut down, effective immediately.
The good news for the Vikings and their fans is as of Tuesday, they have not received any positive results. The Vikings are at Houston this coming Sunday. Meanwhile, Tennessee is supposed to host Pittsburgh. The Steelers have been told to proceed with their game preparations until informed otherwise. If those two games do get canceled for this weekend, the NFL will have to scramble to work them back into the schedule during a "bye" week. And of course, our first concern is the health and safety of those involved. In the meantime, for fantasy football fans, like myself, you better start adjusting your roster if those two games aren't played this weekend.
