ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The week 4 matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans has been postponed to later this season because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the Titans organization.

In a statement, the NFL says the decision was made to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved. The Titans facility will remain closed, and the team will not be allowed to hold any in-person activities, until further notice.

A new date for the game will be announced shortly. Pittsburgh’s bye week is scheduled for week 8, Tennessee’s is scheduled for week 7.
