Titans’ virus outbreak at 5 with Landry now on reserve list

NFL

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)Tennessee linebacker Harold Landry has become the fifth person and first starter affected by the Titans’ latest virus outbreak placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Coach Mike Vrabel announced Sunday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 a day after the Titans beat Tampa Bay 34-3 in Florida. Vrabel later received monoclonal antibodies treatment.

Landry started that game and played six snaps. He spoke to reporters after practice Monday but didn’t practice Tuesday. That’s when the Titans stepped up precautions, including wearing masks inside the team’s headquarters, and also conducted rapid tests on everyone regardless of vaccination status.

Now Landry joins defensive lineman Anthony Rush, linebacker Nick Dzubnar and running back Jeremy McNichols on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which is for players who either test positive for the virus or are in quarantine after close contact with an infected person.

The Titans also claimed offensive lineman Derwin Gray off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
