The NFL has tweaked its season schedule after the Week 4 matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests among the Titans.
Pittsburgh and Tennessee will both have their bye weeks designated as this weekend, and their new game will be played Sunday, Oct. 25 (Week 7) at 1 p.m. ET (CBS). The Steelers were originally scheduled to play the Baltimore Ravens that weekend, but that matchup will move back one week to Nov. 1 at 1 p.m. (CBS).
The Ravens' bye week, originally scheduled for Week 8, has been moved up to Week 7.
Teams were informed Friday that they will not be allowed to leave their home cities during bye weeks, as daily coronavirus testing will still take place. A missed test will result in a $50,000 fine and a second missed test will trigger a one-game suspension without pay.
NEW: NFL tells players and coaches that they can NOT leave town during their bye week and must report for daily testing.
