With an unusual 2020 NFL season almost upon us (hopefully), let’s evaluate the players the Titans can least afford to lose.
Trying to have an NFL season in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic will certainly provide challenges to all 32 teams and front offices.
Every year around this time, fans are praying that their players make it to Week 1 of the regular season injury-free. 2020 adds another layer to those worries, as positive Covid-19 test results could also affect any player at any time.
The NFL has said that players will be tested for the virus every day for at least the first two weeks of camp. If a player tests positive, he must remain away from the team facilities for at least 10 days, and in an already-shortened offseason, 10 days could make a significant difference.
So one could see how a positive Coronavirus test or two could significantly alter a season.
However, Coronavirus being around has not changed the fact that injuries are a part of the game, and likely to affect every team at some point. Perhaps it was a wise decision for the NFL to cancel the preseason in 2020, to at least somewhat decrease the risk of injury as teams navigate the coronavirus fiasco.
So with injuries and pandemics in mind, I wanted to take a look at which players the Titans can least afford to lose.
Whether it be injury or sickness, I have picked the Titans whom I consider the most irreplaceable. It goes without saying that we at Titan Sized hope ALL of the Titans stay healthy for the 2020 season.
