The Tennessee Titans are dealing with a host of issues related to Covid-19, and on Wednesday they placed wide receiver Corey Davis on their COVID/IR list. He joins Adam Humphries who was placed on the IR list late last week. Both receivers’ return is TBD for the moment. If they are symptomatic they’re out at least ten days. If they’re asymptomatic, they’re out at least five days, and could return once they gets consecutive negative test results.

This news comes following word that up to 15 Titans players were seen engaged in a group workout last week in spite of rules prohibiting such conduct during this outbreak. It’s not clear which players were involved, although wide receiver A.J. Brown didn’t exactly help his defense with this deleted tweet. The league is reportedly investigating the situation while figuring out when the Titans will practice and play again.

Davis is in his contract year after the Titans chose to decline his fifth year option. After three inconsistent seasons, he has been showing some breakout potential this season. Through three games, he has 15 receptions for 206 yards and one touchdown.
