All three players will be barred from entering the team facility and from entering team meetings until each can pass the protocols set in place by the NFL prior to this season. The Titans have halted all in-person team activities as of Tuesday.
As of Wednesday morning, the team has revealed an additional player has tested positive but has not disclosed the players name, in total, there are nine members of the Titans organization with confirmed positive tests for COVID-19.
Hudson played his entire collegiate career at Arizona State. Attracted to his well-known run blocking abilities, the Titans saw Hudson as the perfect fit to build depth for their run-first offensive scheme.
Pro Football Focus ranked Hudson as the No. 24 best run blocking tight end in college football last year.
