The Tennessee Titans added wide receiver Racey McMath to the reserve/COVID-19 list, which will keep him out of Saturday’s preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

McMath joins six other players, including starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, sidelined by the protocol.

McMath’s position coach, Rob Moore, and offensive line assistant Jason Houghtaling also will miss the game.

It was clear if McMath and the coaches tested positive for the virus or if they were deemed close contacts of someone who did.

Head coach Mike Vrabel tested positive for the virus last weekend. Special teams coach Craig Aukerman has cleared the protocol and will handle communications with the team in Saturday’s preseason finale.

McMath was a sixth-round pick out of Louisiana State by the Titans this year.

The Titans are scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 12 to open the 2021 season.
