Titans coach Mike Vrabel tests positive for COVID-19

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel announced Sunday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Vrabel, 46, said he is quarantining away from the team following getting tested Sunday morning after developing a sore throat. He said he will lean on Titans assistants Jim Haslett and Jim Schwartz — both former NFL head coaches — in his absence.

“We’ll be fine, we’ll figure this thing out,” Vrabel said. “I don’t think anyone who has been tested this morning has tested positive.”

The Titans had a pair of joint practices with the Buccaneers this past week before posting a 34-3 preseason win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.

Vrabel is entering his fourth season as coach of the Titans. He guided Tennessee to 9-7 records in his first two campaigns before the Titans finished 11-5 in 2020.
