The Tennessee Titans have 23 cases of COVID-19, according to reports from the Associated Press. 

With the number of positives, the Titans' facility remains closed, and the team has been prohibited from any in-person activities which is putting The Buffalo Bills game versus the Titans at risk of being postponed. This would be the second week where the Titans have not been able to play.

This also comes after Patriots quarterback Cam Newton tested positive for the coronavirus, which pushed the Patriots-Chiefs game into Monday Night Football. 

Dr. Dan Fagbuyi, ER physician and biodefense expert, joined TheStreet's Katherine Ross to discuss the NFL's protocols.

Dr. Dan, as he is known to his patients, says that the NFL has been good about enforcing mask-wearing among the coaching staff.

And Sports Illustrated reported that a memo circulated among the league about new procedures earlier this week. 

Per the memo which was "obtained by The MMQB's Albert Breer, teams must keep all surveillance camera video of their facilities and practice areas for at least 30 days; players and staff must sit no more than 10 feet from each other while eating and drinking; and teams must have a minimum of five buses available for travel, up from two previously." 

Watch the video above for Dr. Dan's thoughts on the NFL's COVD-19 protocols.
