Game pushed to next weekPatriots' facility shut down again due to positive COVID-19 test
The NFL is shutting down the New England Patriots training facility again.
An additional Patriots player tested positive for COVID-19 during Saturday's round of testing causing the facility to be shut down as a precaution, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.
The NFL shut down the New England Patriots' practice facility Sunday, despite the team having three straight days without a positive COVID-19 test.
The Patriots worked remotely Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Cam Newton, Stephon Gilmore and defensive tackle Bill Murray are on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list.
This will be the team's third shutdown in the last 10 days. Patriots quarterback Cam Newton s positive COVID test last week resulted in the Patriots-Chiefs game being pushed to Monday night. After the game, a 26-10 loss to Kansas City, cornerback Stephon Gilmore also tested positive.
The Patriots currently are awaiting direction from the league on any potential impact on Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos, according to Pelissero.
