“This morning we learned that a staff member tested positive. We have temporarily closed our facility and are in communication with the league on the next steps,” the Titans said in a statement, via ESPN.

As a result, the Titans' Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was rescheduled for later this month, which resulted in the Steelers giving up their bye week. With more cases, the Bills-Titans game, initially scheduled for Sunday, was moved to Tuesday night. 

No word on if the league will postpone the game as a result of the new case.

One player told ESPN, “Our game is still on. I just asked my coach.”
