Tennessee Titans reserve linebacker David Long was placed on the Reserve Covid-19 list on Monday by the club.
According to a statement by the Titans, their practice facility will remain open for now and Long will go into isolation.
Earlier this season, the Titans were ravaged by the coronavirus and their facility was shut down for 10 days as the team went through 24 cases of the virus between players and staff.”This morning the Titans placed a player on the Reserve-Covid-19 List. Per the NFL-NFLPA protocols, the player went into self-isolation. Contact tracing has been conducted and, based on the results, our practice facility remains open. The team will continue to monitor the situation and stay in close communication with the league,” the Titans statement said.
Also, the Titans have opened up the 21-day window for running back Darrynton Evans to be activated from injured reserve. Evans twice this season has been plagued by a hamstring. The 2020 third-round pick was expected to be the Titans’ third-down back, but that role has been filled mostly by Jeremy McNichols with Evans on the shelf.
The Titans will have three weeks from today to either place Evans back on the 53-man roster or shut him down for the season by putting him back on injured reserve.
