The National Football League has pushed the Steelers and Titans matchup further down the schedule due to a coronavirus outbreak.

There is no official date, yet, according to the NFL.

The Pittsburgh-Tennessee game scheduled for Week 4 will be rescheduled to later this season after one additional Titans player and one personnel member tested positive for COVID-19 today. An announcement of the new game date will be made shortly.

The decision to postpone the game was made to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel. The Titans facility will remain closed and the team will continue to have no in-person activities until further notice.

Following Tennessee’s Week 3 win against Minnesota, three players and five team personnel people tested positive for the coronavirus. That brings the Titans team total to 10 COVID-19 cases. It’s the first spread of the virus since the season kicked off in early September.

Canadian receiver Chase Claypool will have a bye week earlier than expected. Pittsburgh’s scheduled Week 8 bye was at the same time as Week 7 opponent Baltimore. Meanwhile, Tennessee has a bye set for Week 7. The Steelers and Titans could play that week with the Ravens bye moved to Week 7 to account for the shifting schedule.
