The Patriots are scheduled to play host to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. The game has already been postponed a week after New England star DB Stephon Gilmore tested positive. That followed quarterback Cam Newton testing positive before the game with Kansas City.
A total of nine players from six teams – the Eagles, Falcons, Jaguars, Panthers, Patriots and Ravens – all have placed at least one player on the COVID list since yesterday.
