NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans returned no positive COVID-19 tests for the second day in a row Tuesday, a source told PaulKuharsky.com.

That means the Titans can potentially reopen their facility Wednesday. It appears only a new positive Wednesday morning could throw that off.EmptyFacilityTitans

Team headquarters has been closed since Sept. 29, when the team was told to clear out after three players and five staff members tested positive.

The Titans are coming off a week without a game after their matchup with the Steelers was pushed back to Week 7 because of all their positive tests -- 19 total after Shane Bowen's the day before the Vikings game.

Mike Vrabel said on his Titans Radio show Monday night that the team will proceed not expecting contributions from any of the players who've been placed on the COVID-Reserve list.

That leaves the Titans with an unofficial depth chart of 47 players that looks like this:

Adoree' Jackson remains on IR and his status is unknown.

Tennessee has room to add six players to its roster and to elevate two more from its practice squad over the weekend.

A return to the facility will come with stricter protocols.

Players will wear masks or shields during practices. Treatment will continue to take place just a few players at a time with a scaled-down training staff, with all involved both masked and shielded. Only 10 players at a time will be allowed in the weight room. And all meetings must take place remotely.

The Titans remain under league investigation. The NFL wants to know if the team violated protocols in a way that may have led to the spread of the coronavirus and can punish the team for doing so with fines or by taking away a draft pick.

A source said the case is still under review.
