SOURCES: Sunday’s Vikings Game Against Texans Will Go On As Planned
After exposure concerns following last week's game against the Tennessee Titans, who had several team members and staff test positive for COVID-19, the NFL has confirmed the status of this weekend's Vikings matchup.
The Titans, who the Vikings hosted last Sunday, have had a growing number of positive tests within the organization this week. Because of that, the league has suspended their game against the Steelers this weekend.
With the potential of exposure for Vikings players and staff during the game against Tennessee, they were forced to cancel in-person team activities for a period of time while testing and monitoring of players and staff this week. The Vikings were able to return to team facilities Thursday, but the fate of this weekend's game against the Texans was still up in the air.
With no positive tests over the course of the week, league sources have shared that the game is on as scheduled.
Houston will host the Vikings at noon on Sunday, with both teams looking for their first win of the season.
