The Tennessee Titans were fined $350,000 for COVID-19 protocol violations.
The Tennessee Titans were fined $350,000 for COVID-19 protocol violations, an NFL spokesperson confirmed to The MMQB’s Albert Breer.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, the fines derive from instances in which the team failed to comply with COVID-19 protocol requirements on mask-wearing and insufficient communication regarding workouts outside the team’s facility.
NFL Network also reports that the team fully cooperated in the NFL’s review. No individuals were punished and the team will not face any draft-pick penalties, per Breer.
Between Sept. 24 and Oct. 11, the Titans had 24 members of their organization test positive for COVID-19. As a result of their positive tests, the team’s Week 4 game vs. the Steelers was postponed until Week 7 and the team’s Week 5 game against the Bills was moved from Sunday, Oct. 11 to Tuesday, Oct. 13.
