NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Pittsburgh-Tennessee NFL game will be played later this season, instead of being delayed to Monday or Tuesday, the NFL clarified Thursday morning.

The rescheduling is due to positive coronavirus test results among the Titans.

The NFL said Thursday, an additional player and team staffer tested positive on the Titans' squad. 

The NFL previously announced the game delay Wednesday. The previous day the NFL said that three Titans and five other team personnel had tested positive for COVID-19. The Titans have closed their facility "until further notice," the NFL said in a new statement Thursday.

Both the Titans and Steelers are 3-0 and among the NFL’s seven undefeated teams.

Tennessee beat Minnesota 31-30 on Sunday, and the Vikings’ team facility is closed at least through Wednesday.

“The Steelers-Titans game, originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET, will be rescheduled to allow additional time for further daily COVID-19 testing and to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel,” the NFL said.
