NASHVILLE, TN - Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel may have missed the action on the Titans' final preseason game against the Chicago Bears, but he made sure that he watched the game while in quarantine and made evaluations on his squad. Vrabel has been in quarantine since last week after he tested positive for COVID-19.
In a video conference call with the media on Sunday, Vrabel said that he has been feeling fine and great while in quarantine at home. But he still need to be tested negative before coming back to Saint Thomas Sports Park to oversee the Titans practice before the start of the regular season.
With the preseason is now in the books, what's next for Tennessee is roster cut and build a 53-man roster. This roster has to be submitted to the NFL no later than Aug. 31 at 3.00 p.m. CT. Vrabel said that he and general manager Jon Robinson haven't started the process yet. He also mentioned that it's been difficult being away from the team. Because he loves the game and the team, he missed all the actions from practice and the game.
In terms of communication with the team, Vrabel said that he always keeps in contact with the team through video calls, especially with the players on Reserve/COVID list. The Titans last week have to put seven players on the list including starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The head coach keeps communicating with the team to make sure that they do the protocols well, therefore they can come back to the field on schedule.
