“They canceled our game, not the way we practiced all week,” Denver ran back. Melvin Gordon I wrote on Twitter on Sunday morning.
No, it will not be canceled. However, it is uncertain when the Broncos-Patriots will be played.

“We are temporarily closing the facility and staying in touch with the league in the next step,” Titans said.
Bears also had a problem and on Saturday moved the aggressive lineman Badara Traore from the practice team to the Reserve / COVID-19 list.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill addressed the uncertainty of the situation on Saturday.
“It was certainly a roller coaster,” he said. “Sure, the fact that asymptomatic men were positive and seriously symptomatic men were tested negative for multiple days in a row was really amazing. We really know. Only the fact that there isn’t.
“So we have to treat everyone as if they were infected with a virus. Unfortunately, through everything we’ve done over the past week and a half, we may have lost confidence in our test system. Yes, but from the beginning, he said that testing cannot prevent the spread of the virus. This is a way to handle yourself with all protocols and even outside the building. “
