Patriots cancel practice after testing
From New England to Atlanta to Indianapolis, the focus Friday was not on football. It was on, not surprisingly, coronavirus tests.
The Patriots canceled practice after a member of the organization reportedly tested positive for COVID- 19.
The team and the NFL did not the positive test and did not if it involved a player or a coach.
With the Colts, there were four positive tests that, when retested, came up negative. The Falcons returned to their facility one day after abandoning it when they announce reveal had a second positive.
New England ( 2- 2) already twice had the original Week 5 matchup against Denver postponed after four positive coronavirus tests by players, including quarterback Cam Newton and cornerback Stephon Gilmore. The game is scheduled for Sunday in Foxborough, Mass., but now could be in jeopardy.
“I don’t really know the answer to that,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio said when asked about finally playing the Patriots.
