NASHVILLE, Tenn. — For the second day in a row, the Tennessee Titans did not report any new cases of COVID-19. As a result, the organization could reopen its headquarters this week and resume practice.

Additionally, ESPN's Dianna Russini reported Tuesday morning that the team could get back to practice as early as Wednesday. Russini also said the Titans' game against the Buffalo Bills, currently scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Nashville, will be played as scheduled.

On Monday, the Titans had their first day clear of positive results after having at least one positive each of the past six days dating back to Sept. 29. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Tennessee needs that to continue Wednesday to be able to go back to its facility.

A total of 18 Titans, including several players, have tested positive for COVID-19, the most in the NFL. The outbreak forced the postponement of last Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. A make-up date for that game has not yet been announced.
