The Tennessee Titans are looking to be punished quite severely after a group of players on the team allegedly worked out at Montgomery Bell Academy late last month against NFL directions not to hold such get-togethers while team headquarters was closed because of a COVID-19 outbreak.
“Students at the private school saw a large group of adult football players they identified as Titans working out on the school’s field during classes in the middle of the day. Another source said he saw Ryan Tannehill there.”
The league is now investigating the matter:
The Titans now have 10 players and nine staff members sidelined by COVID-19.
Tannehill had this to say on September 30th:
“You can’t sit around on the couch for a week and be on a Zoom meeting and expect to go be at a physical peak on a Sunday, or whenever the game is going to be. It’s going to look a little bit different for everybody, what they’re able to do, where they’re able to work out, in a garage, in a gym somewhere, I’m not even sure.
“Every man on this team is charged with prepping themselves, getting their bodies right, making sure that we’re running, we’re conditioned, and ready to go whenever the game comes around….”
“I’m just going to make sure that I’m getting throws in and ready to go and throw the ball well when the game comes around.”
