The Tennessee Titans have a situation on their hands with quarterback Ryan Tannehill one of seven players on the reserve / COVID list.
As the regular season approaches, the Tennessee Titans have a problem bubbling to the surface with seven players on the reserve / COVID list.
Head coach Mike Vrabel tested positive after the team’s preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Since then, the Titans have had to place seven players on the list, including the quarterback Ryan tannehill.
Joining Tannehill on the reserve / COVID list are outside linebacker Harold Landry, defensive lineman Anthony Rush, linebacker Nick Dzubnar and running back Jeremy McNichols, tight end Geoff Swaim and linebacker Justin March-Lillard.
Has Ryan Tannehill been vaccinated?
Tannehill is vaccinated. He is among the 97 percent of the Titans watch list vaccinated, according to general manager John Robinson.
The vaccination greatly reduces the symptoms and becomes infected, but it does not completely eliminate the chances. That is why the term breakthrough cases exists.
Tannehill and the Titans who have been vaccinated have done the right thing to ensure a competitive advantage and limit their time away from the team if they test positive.
While there are some interesting decisions made by the NFL when it comes to their COVID protocols, those who are vaccinated will not be away from the team as long as those who are not.
If there’s a bright side, it’s that neither Vrabel, Tannehill nor any of the other Titans on the reserve list are in danger of missing out on a regular season action and should be ready to join their teammates next week. .
