The NFL fined the Tennessee Titans $350,000 for violating protocols leading to the league's first COVID-19 outbreak during the season, a person familiar with the discipline told the Associated Press.
The Titans had 24 people, including 13 players, test positive for COVID-19 between Sept. 24 and Oct. 11. The outbreak led the NFL to postpone two Tennessee games and reschedule two others.
The NFL and its players association sent officials to Nashville, where they reviewed video and interviewed players, coaches and other personnel.
But the NFL found the Titans failed to wear masks at all times and were "insufficiently clear" to players about not meeting or working out once the facility closed. That kept the loss of draft picks or a forfeit out of the possible punishments.
