Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the Titans have been fined $350,000 for their violations of the league’s COVID-19 protocols:

In the story that Rapoport and Tom Pelissero wrote at NFL.com, it mentions that the fines are specifically related to instances of failure to comply with requirements on wearing masks, as well as insufficient clear communication regarding workouts outside the facility. The story also says that no individual member of the organization has been fined.
At some point in the next few days we will get official word from the NFL and this will all be over.
This is far different than what Pro Football Talk was reporting could happen just a few weeks ago, Sure, they were talking about what they were hearing from their “sources,” but now might be a good time for them to re-evaluate what qualifies as a “source.”
Now everyone can put this behind them and focus on beating the Steelers!
